This deep, dark, viscous brew stands up to other imperial stouts, delivering big flavors in a smooth, balanced and easy-drinking package. Robust and chocolaty with a hint of hop freshness, it’s the perfect beer to warm up with as winter cold sets in.

5000 (6600) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle:   Black, frothy beige head, spotty lacing.   Soft roastiness on the nose and on the tongue.   Lightly sweet, dark chocolate, a touch of ash and even pasture.   Fairly smooth despite having a moderate body and mouthfeel.   Comes across as fairly solid.   Good example of an Imperial Stout.   Not all that hoppy either, very light bitterness.   Has a good balance.   Yep, solid.
