A badass Imperial Stout
Double Mountain brewer Kyle Larsen designed and brewed this beer. A blend of dark malts (chocolate, Carafa, Special B and roasted barley) delivers complexity in both aroma and flavor. Bumped up with light and dark Candi sugar, and buoyed by plenty of bittering hops.

Sampled at Lucky Lab’s Big Beer and Barleywine Festival. Poured a deep black with a nice, tight tan head and solid lacing. Nose of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Flavor is burnt malts, bittersweet chocolate, coffee. The components are all there, but I have to dock this one just a bit for having a kind of weak mouthfeel. Just a little too thin for me, but otherwise a really good beer.

draft at brouwers back in black. jet black with a loose ring of burnt tan head. big roasty dark nose with toast and coffee. creamy thick body, low carb. roasty, charred, slightly acrid heavy duty mid palate that ends with a slick mouthfeel. long clingy roast aftertaste.

Draft, Beveridge Place. Black with a thick tan head, leaves a lot of lacing. Aroma is coffee, char, smoke, a little nuttiness. This isn’t as sweet as most imperial stouts and is more roasty and smokey, with some licorice, chocolate, and a lot of coffee and char. On the dryer side with a moderate body. Not thin feeling, but not as heavy as most imp stouts. Pretty darn good, though this feels more like an imperial porter than an imperial stout. Damned if I really understand why.

Tap @ Barleywine & Big Beer Fest... Poured black with a light, tan head. Nose was roasty with a slight licorice sweetness. Chalky, smokey, and sweet. Big malts lent to a meaty, smokey, charred finish. Nothing too unique here as far as flavors, but a solid representation of the style.

Pours glossy black, with a dense foam that looks like toasted marshmallow goo. Nice and dry, good hop balance taking the roasty-toasty coffee and dark molasses notes back a couple notches. Not super thick, but it seems about right - velvety smooth, and barely noticeable alcohol. There’s a slightly lactic note that fades fairly quickly, but other than that, this is a really nice brew.

Black, rather flat body, with ring of head. Coffee cake nose with moderate roasted malts, and enjoyable medley. Dark, robust, earthy chocolate liquer flavor with coffee grains at the back of the palate. No real off-flavors. A drinkable Imperial Stout that doesn’t have too many rough edges. Good stuff.

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Nose of dark chocolate and coffee. Burnt and roasty as well. Black pour meringue tan head that settles to a film. Really nice lace. Burnt and roasty coffee. Some super light brown sugary sweetness. Mostly burnt roast though. Drying bitterness lasts in the finish. Hints of brown candi sugar throughout at least imo. Caramel might make an appearance here and there too. A touch of alcohol in finish too. Smooth carbonation that is zesty at times. Becomes a little acrid in a way as well. Well made but not my favorite.

Draught. Poured black with tan head. Moderate lacing. Medium aroma of coffee and roast malt. Coffee notes in the flavour, with the malty finish. Stronger than it tastes.
