Last, but certainly not least in this awesome special offer, we have the unique and ultra-rare Jopen Sin & Remorse Imperial Stout that has been aged for 376 days in Scotch Whisky barrels from Islay, Ben Nevis, and Caol Ila. Whiskies distilled on the island of Islay are commonly characterized as peaty and smokey, while the Ben Nevis distillery focuses on malt-forward whiskies. This Jopen Sin & Remorse is in very limited supply and imported exclusively for the Rare Beer Club.

This Scotch Whisky barrel-aged imperial stout pours a deep, opaque black with a thick and creamy tan head. Aromas of peat and smoke waft in the air as this beer is poured, with rich notes of dark chocolate, espresso bean, and toasted oak. As we swirl, hints of dark cigar wrapper emerge, along with dried dark fruit such as raisins and dates. The ex-Scotch barrels give earthy depth that provides a solid base for the smokey malt to build on. The essence of peat gives a real depth to the aromas and the deeply roasted malt adds a bruleed brown sugar note that’s carried throughout.

The Jopen Sin & Remorse Scotch Whisky barrel imperial stout has a large footprint and on the palate is well structured, focusing at first on the peaty and smokey notes of the barrels. The depth in flavor continues with notes of dark roasted espresso beans, toasted brown sugar, and dried black fruit. Dense and full of character, we noticed the flavors are layered so well that one can detect them individually. The mousse is also well integrated and adds a creamy texture to the mouthfeel. The length of the finish is prolonged and truly remarkable for such a complex beer.

The Jopen Sin & Remorse Scotch Whisky Barrel-aged Imperial Stout can be enjoyed now and will stand the test of time with long-term aging. For pairing we think triple-cream cheeses and Texas-style barbeque would be excellent, as would dark chocolate desserts, or your favorite fine cigar. Cheers!
