With Prickly Moses' Barrel Fest, during Good Beer Week, just around the corner, the Otway brewery is leaking a wee taster. Nigella is one of the barrel-aged beers appearing at the Royal Standard and has been aged in Hunter Valley Shiraz and Victorian Madeira barrels for the past year. Previously, the barrels were used to aged the brewery's 2013 Black Stallion Imperial Stout. While in oak, cold soaked "Malt Blend" coffee supplied by Geelong's Capra Coffee was added to Otway Stout, in a manner similar to dry-hopping. According to head brewer Luke Scott, calling the beer complex "is an understatement." He says to expect a sharp but clean sourness up front, followed by coffee notes and then "an oak-driven depth ... matched with underlying characters of our Stout." He says it's unique, "is not going to be everyone's cup of tea" and, as well as heading to the Barrel Fest, will appear at a handful of other venues too.

Taste this alongside a range of other Prickly barrel beers during Good Beer Week - tickets here.
