Wolf Release IV + Lark Barrel Aged Imperial JSP IV Beer

Wolf Release IV + Lark Barrel Aged Imperial JSP IV Beer

gift pack


This big, bad release is back and has as much howl as ever. Once again swapping barrels with Victoria’s Wolf of the Willows Brewery, Wolf Release IV takes a porter-braised core of smoked malt and chocolate and gives it a bright citrus lift.

The Barrel-Aged Imperial Johnny Smoke Porter was aged in 100L Lark barrels for an average of 9 months and is weighing in at a hefty 11.8%. The result is an Imperial Smoke Porter rich with whisky barrel-aged flavours of dark cocoa, espresso, truffle, vanilla, molasses and a subtle smoke.

A collaboration of distinction

For four years running, we’ve shared a vision with our friends across the pond — handcrafting modern tipples distinct in quality, flavour and character. We send them whisky casks, they age their Johnny Smoke Porter in them and we then use them to finish this beast of a release. This year’s comes from our Bothwell Distillery, handpicked because it lifts and freshens any finish — even one as dark and brooding as Johnny.
