On tap at Peekskill Brewery, in their new and rather gorgeous location. Pours a deep black with a medium sized dens tan head. Big heavy roast on the nose, cocoa and chocolate. Medium to thick bodied, big roast and cocoa. Gorgeous body here, lots of roast, cocoa, chocolate, a touch of plum and the faintest bit of alcohol peeking through. Very straightforward and full of roast, chocolate, and cocoa, Warming alcohol into the finish, even more cocoa and roast. Amazing stuff. Well done Hutch!

The first Imperial Stout release from Crossroads. Thanks Hutch! A lovely black in the snifter with a dense dark tan head. Variable lacing. Nose could be a bit stronger although the undulating and robust flavor profile is delightful. Wavy deep tones of dark malt plateau in mid quaff to gentle chocolate with cream slickness. Great with the local hot dogs on Wiener Wednesday!
