Stiegl Sonnenkonig VII Barrel Aged Scotch Ale 2020 12.5% Austria 750ml
Stiegl Brewery, famous for more than 500 years in the Austrian town of Salzburg, is one of Austria's top independent breweries making a range of continental beer styles from Lager to Radler.
The Sonnenkonig range are one-off vintage beer releases from 2015 through to 2020, that were made in Stiegl's museum brewhouse. These beers are extraordinarily rare, with the Sonnenkonig II Tequila Barrel Wit 2015 release no longer even available in Stiegl's museum stocks.
Sonnenkonig VII appears shimmering amber with a restrained foam, fruity aromas packed with banana, peach and dates accompany hearty caramel and smoky rum notes. Scottish peaty nuances on the palate, velvety soft on the tongue, with a strong character and delicate bitterness on the finish.
