Honoring our favorite local blacksmith, this flavorful Stout is a selected mix of ten malts and five hop varieties. Imperial Stout was a key British export in the Baltic trade that elevated art and industry in Russia and England during the 18th Century. Celebrate craftsmanship and raise a glass to broader flavor horizons.

Aroma is a little weak. Standard Imperial Stout scent, but muted and with a strange red wine vinegar characteristic. The appearance is nice - flat black color with a tiny cap of tan foam that leaves a lot of lacing. Nice creamy flavor with a welcome sweetness that opens up before giving way to hops and roasty bitterness. Booze burn in the aftertaste; I have never taken away points from a beer for that. Great palate, thick yet smooth. This beer was good, not great.

Beaver (1507) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 3, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours dark black brown with a big creamy tan head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is roasted chocolate malt, black licorice and a little fruit.

The flavor is roasted chocolate malts, black licorice and some dark fruit and an ashy bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Overall, a nice imperial stout.

Bottle, Boise imperial stout tasting. Pours a deep brown and capped with a small beige head. Nose is roasty, heavy roast, nutty, and some sweetness. Didn’t really care for the taste so much... heavy roast and a bit of licorice. Some dark fruit. The heavy roast seemed out of place and led into the sweetness being out of place.
