COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the creator role, and in the Raven’s role as the totem and ancestor, the Raven is often addressed as Grandfather Raven. With this stately sense of pomp and tradition we would be bringing you our Imperial Stout, Grandfather Raven. However, this is an older, grander bird that had spent over a year honing itself in a 20 year bourbon barrel. Since then it has been maturing on stainless steel. This robust black ale is full with rich dark caramel, unsweetened chocolate, with hints of coffee all mellowed with smooth oak and top shelf bourbon notes. Stately indeed, but at 10.5+% ABV, perhaps it is just a vain attempt to encourage the trickster spirit to act respectably. AWARD WINNING 2012 World Beer Cup Silver Medal - Wood and Barrel Aged Strong Stout
