COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The latest addition to Boneyard’s growing family of beers – a 14-percent imperial stout, dubbed Suge Knite, and pronounced just like the infamous gangsta rap producer – is the Evander Holyfield of ales: a serious heavyweight. Inspired by another oversize stout, the Dark Lord, from Indiana’s 3 Floyds brewery, with whom Boneyard Brewmaster Tony Lawrence previously collaborated on Boneyard’s Cascadian ale, Armored Fist. Suge Knight is a massive beer that Lawrence said took some real coaxing throughout the brewing process. The result is a near masterpiece that is proving popular with people who might not usually reach for a Russian stout at the end of their shift. Stay stout, Bend.

On Tap at mainbrew.com Beautiful creamy tan head that last forever. Massive roasty-malt, bourbon, oak, aroma and flavor. Has some malt sweetness but also has a finish for being 14% ABV. Very rich, very drinkable. One of the best imperial stouts out there! Highly recommend!
