Damon (1993-2004) The time spent with loved ones, now lost, seems to affect our mind and body perpetually: memories happen upon us, unsuspectingly, and bring about tears of fond remembrance. Damon was our brother – devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we crafted and conditioned this Imperial Stout in bourbon barrels from our favorite distillery. We still reflect, daily, upon our Damon and his scruffy chin of grey – of his loyalty and his love. 27º Plato 10.5% abv

yngwie (15759) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 9, 2012
Bottle. The pours is quite oily, it’s almost black in color and topped by a small, light tan head. It’s lightly alcoholic on the nose, with coffee, dark chocolate, some soy sauce and licorice. The aroma suggest quite a lot of sweetness, and that’s what you get. As well as licorice and soy sauce hints, as well as dark chocolate and coffee. Quite one tracked, but still complex and pleasant. Full body, warming and soft on the palate. Lasting finish with roasted malts, coffee and some warming alcohol. Wonderful. 121109
