The Bruery ‘Meemaw’s Sticky Bun’ BA Imperial Stout


“A heavenly aroma from Meemaw’s kitchen fills the house and your nose guides you to a pan of piping hot, golden brown sticky buns, oozing sugary cinnamon deliciousness topped with roasty pecans. This imperial stout serves up a delectable tribute to these famous treats, brewed with grandma-approved helpings of maple syrup, cinnamon, and pecans. Don’t be shy, take a bite into this freshly-baked stout.”

Glassware: Snifter.

Appearance: Black with a finger of finely beaded brown foam perched on top. Steady reduction, eventually settling at the rim. Spotty lace sticks to the glass as go.

Aroma: If there was a liquid version of pure decadence it would be this. The fusion of caramel, butterscotch, cinnamon, maple and toasted pecans is heavenly. It’s extremely sweet but so well balanced…we could literally bathe in it. Unfortunately we don’t have sticky buns in Australia (as far as we know) so the closest comparison would be a caramelised cinnamon scroll dipped in maple and topped with crushed pecans. Salivating yet?!

Flavour: Literally liquid dessert! Conventional impy stout base with everything on the front of the can making an appearance. Not only that it’s the way the flavours gel together to create one big old palate-gasm. But from start to finish that’s the best way to explain it.

Mouthfeel: Thick, oily, viscous. Medium-full body, low Co2. The 9.2% ABV is ridiculously well hidden.

Overall: We’ve probably said it a few times already so we’ll just get straight to the point – if you see this then grab it. World class stuff.
