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

Slightly hoppy aroma, followed by cedar and chocolate. Nice on the palate, it’s aged well. Dryer, not a lot of sweetness, moderate bittering. Pretty good.

Backlog. Pours black with brown head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, dried fruit, sherry, wood, and coffee. Flavour is roasted malt with lots of chocolate, coffee with a little smoke in the aftertaste. Very nice.

Bottled. Has a great amount of alcohol and some sweetness to it. You can taste the cedar and the caramel. The hops is noticeable but not taking over. 110k is delicious!

Pours a dark black with a thin head and light carbonation. Has a nice imperial stout nose and intial taste. Has a initial nice chocolate malt taste but has a lingering perfume after taste that lingers and to me ruins the beer. Very disappointed considering cigar city is one of my favorite brewers.

Sample from motortoddhead. Thanks brotha! Deep black pour with minimal head. Nose is a mix of dark fruit and grainy roast malt with a dash of dark chocolate and cocoa. Flavor is a decadent, silky dark/Baker’s chocolate, slightly gritty, mixed with deep roasted malt and a hint more of the dark fruit. Residual gritty chocolate. Extremely rich and tasty with a milkshake palate. No alcohol, and way too easy going down for the ABV. Despite the slightly underwhelming aroma, this was killer beer. Thanks for the uber goodness Todd!

Opaque black beer. Chocolate coloured frothy head. Nose of roasted malt and minerally hops. Softish palate. Rich well roasted malts A little chocolate and light coffee. Touch of hop bitterness on the finish. Not the smoothest of Imperial Stouts but quite drinkable.

Bottle. Pours tar black with dark copper head. Aroma of astringent dark roasted grain and bitter cocoa. Flavor is much the same with a strong malty back bone, alcohol, strong dark roast bitterness. Heavy mouth feel, slight oxidation, low carbonation. Overall, outstanding beer!
