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.

electrotype (558) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Je ne trouve pas que le blé fait une si grande différence que ça, ici. C’est une bière légèrement fûmée, assez costaude. Pas de notes de café ou de chocolat, ou alors très peu. C’est surtout le côté fumé et la torréfaction des grains qui resort. L’alcool est perceptible mais pas désagréable. Pas mon genre.

Catch up rating from Saturday’s RIS bottle share. Big, bold and dark, tasty bitter roast grains, hints of alcohol warmth peeping through. Another keeper out of the lot of 160 bottles.
