COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
110K+ OT Batch #2 is an Imperial Stout dry hopped with Mt. Rainier hops and aged on toasted Spanish Cedar. I.R.I.S. stands for India Russian Imperial Stout and while this brew is still all stout right down to its hefty body, it is hopped a great deal more than our standard stout offerings. The extra punch of kettle hops balances the rich chocolate and malt notes and the Mt. Rainier dry hopping adds slight licorice notes while the cedar contributes to a moderately spicy, burnt and bitter finish. 11.4% ABV. Bottling run 87, 12 bottle cases. 110K+OT Batch #2 I.R.I.S. is a capped 750ml

Inky black. Long lasting tan foam. Dark chocolate and truffle aroma. Velvety mouth feel. Flavor is alarmingly complex, balanced and intense. Long lasting finish. Profound effort. Has a malt density and mouth feel that reminds me of Danish dark beers. It has an uncommon character when compared to other American craft brewed Imperial Stouts.

Good stuff! Glad to have finally tried it!

Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small tan head. Aroma of licorice, smoke, mint, wood, booze and chocolate. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with notes of raw sugar, licorice and chocolate. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Quite rotten, but good.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. Nose is an amazing tar and leather with a hint of smoke. Pitch black with a brown head molasses as it warms. Taste is just as amazing. Just a thick viscous luscious ebony dream. Light smoke, anise, some pepper. Grate

umich03jm (3421) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle thanks to northernbrews for sharing. Black pour with a small creamy head that fades to a thin ring. Aromas are chocolate syrup, alcohol, tobacco, and light roast. Tastes like raisins and tobacco mostly, some chocolate and caramel sweetness. Noticeable oxidation. Slightly spicy and woody finish. I bet this was better a few years ago.

wedgie9 (2598) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2015
From notes. Tasted some time near the fall of 2012 from a capped 750mL bottle, big thanks to zathrus13 for the trade way back in the day. Pours completely thick, oil black with a thin brown head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is roasted with dark chocolate, tons of molasses and cocoa nibs. The flavor is sweet with molasses and a touch of vanilla up front with a ton of super roasted bitterness from coffee and dark chocolate on the back of the palate. The body has that signature Cigar City full, rich creaminess, with light carbonation and a long, super roasted bitter finish.
