"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.

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.

Bottled at Københavnske Øldage. Near black with firm brown head. Sweet and caramelly with burnt popcorn, sticky choclate and some syrup. Quite malty, but the mouthfeel is a bit mellow. Notes of tar in a salty, lightly resiny finish.

Travlr (20954) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Deep chestnut color with a medium tan head that lasts a long time, and leaves good lacing. Aroma of bourbon and oak. Great maltiness with notes of caramel, but not overly sweet; well-balanced. Light spice in the background. Very good body. Excellent brew overall, to be sought after. Best beer of the night at Churchkey.
