Let Sleeping Dogs Lie Russian Imperial Stout | Black Dog Brewery

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie Russian Imperial Stout


 Our imperial stout used a massive amount of malt, with plenty of dark roasted malts and a small amount of toasted oats to add smoothness.

We joined forces with the guys at Four Rascals to perfect a coffee blend, that would work perfectly with this powerful brew.

We fermented and aged in a small American oak barrel, soaked with a beautifully layered liqueur port from Taminick Cellars, with a combination of Belgian yeasts.

The flavours are very rich, with chocolate, mocha, plum pudding, rum and raisin the driving force, with plenty of hop bitterness to balance.


This is a very richly layered brewed and is best matched to a chocolate based dessert such as a double chocolate pudding with salted caramel sauce
