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.

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - APR 30, 2008
50 cL bottle, batch 60. Pours black with a dense chocolate brown head. Roasted malt aroma, nice note of chocolate and a distinct hops wooden note shining through. Smooth fullbodied brew. Flavour is a lovely mix of hard roasted malt and acidic hops touch. Shows a solid alcohol presence lightly burning into the finish yet smoothend by the chocolate notes.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 28, 2007
Batch number 60
Black color; beige, big but fizzy head. Strange aroma mixing light feelings of malt, caramel, roasted malt, cardboard, grass, manure. The mouthfeel is quite dry, with medium strength; there is a lot of roasted malt, caramel and liquorice flavor. The final as well could not be else than bitter with roasted malt and liquorice. Not the top of the list.
