As dark as the legend of Blackbeerd himself, behold the Imperial Stout. Sweet malts battle roasted grain on the decks of yer tongue. Like a blast from a cannon, hop are followed by smoked malt. Hold on to yer booty, a dark stouts a brewin’. (9.3% abv) Seasonal-winter. And yes, this IS a lighter bodied stout-easier drinkin’ in the not so cold south. Ingredients: Two-row barley*, Black, Caraffa*, Roasted barley*, Smoked, Oats* and Extra Special* malts, Magnum and Palisades hops, ale yeast and filtered water.

Butters (4047) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 19, 2011
Sampled both at Brewvival 2011 and at the Richmond 14th Gathering. Very dark brown pour with ring of tan head. Defintiely good with a very long lasting bourbon warming in the back of the throat. Sweet vanilla and dark cherry and vanilla and chocolate and light roast. Very mellow and smooth, but still with alcohol. Good stuff.

courtesy of brewedawakening, thank you so much! wow, is this a treat! i love the way jd barrels play on a beer, just divine. this stuff pours very think black, very oily and dense, with a slow rising dark brown head that has good retention and excellent lacing and spotting. smells like chocolate milk, totally awesome, almost like a st stout. the taste is to match, just awesome. sweet, creamy, thick, lightly barreled, but just enough to make itself known, especially comes through nicely in the finish and after taste. the smokey peaty original beer is still there, but the bitterness is balanced so beautifully by the sweet marshmallows, chocolate milk and jd. the body is top notch, thick and full, nothing unpleasant about it. excellent beer, i really enjoyed this one.
