COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Imperial Stout is a jet-black beer with an assertive bitterness and pronounced herbal hop aroma. It has flavor notes of coffee, chocolate and licorice, though we added none of these. It all comes from the blend of six malts we used.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2013 Wow, either been awhile since has been made or been reviewed. Either way it was there today at lunch on cask. Served in a tulip glass, rich dark brown color with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, light chocolate and some dark fruit. Taste was aroma balanced with a light hop note. Somewhat lighter then the usual IS, but the aroma and flavor was definitely there. Good winter offering, it is the base of the "Brewed Awaking" where it’s aged with coffee (had that too).

egajdzis (5248) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2004
Poured dark brown with a tan sticky head and nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast coffee, anise, light chocolate and fig aroma. Light roast, some chocolate, medicinal, almost cherry cough syrup taste. Thin.

hopscotch (8776) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 8, 2004
Pitch black ale. Opaque, cola color when held up to very bright light. Small, creamy, off-white head. Minimal lacing. Notes of espresso, dark chocolate and black strap molasses/licorice in the nose. Charred flowers. Well-bittered, like Storm King or Dark Lord, but the body is much lighter and the ABV is much lower. Still, big props for being compared to those two wonderful beers. Medium to full-bodied with an astringent mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, dry, burnt, bitter finish. Too thin for the style, but a terrific beer nonetheless.
