Hoop & Stave No. 4 is an Imperial Brown Ale aged over one year in red wine barrels. The roasted, nutty sweetness of cocoa and malt balance well with the rick wine notes. Notice the complexity of the red wine open up as the beer warms. In our opinion, it is best served after dinner while it's snowing, sitting in a hot tub.
Hops: Magnum, Mt. Hood
Malts: Brown, Chocolate, Crystal, Pale, Victory
