COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Double" (imperial) wheat stout.
This imperial really strikes back. From a strange country far, far away, comes the only Imperial Wheat Stout in the known universe. Once again, the ’Hand’ brewery - four guys brewing in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale - boldly goes where no brewery has gone before.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2007
Københavnske Øldage 07. Bottle. It’s a pitch black Impy with a nice, creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, coffee and chocolate and a bit of fruity sourness. The mouthfeel is oily. The flavour has nice notes of coffee, chocolate, licorice and the wheat yeast gives notes of fruit, maybe a bit of banana and a nice fruity sourness, that develops in to a rather pronounced citrussy bitterness. 2197
