COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the delightful combination of whiskey, sugar and coffee. However, you don’t have to be Irish and it doesn’t have to be morning to enjoy this labor of love. Our Imperial Stout was aged in whiskey barrels, then blended with a big Milk Stout, and finally infused with locally roasted cold-pressed coffee. It’s a complex beer meant to be shared with friends over an Irish toast.

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thick black pour with nice tan head, aroma brought notes of espresso, dark chocolate, hints of lactose, touch of grain, caramel, toffee in there as well, smells very nice. Taste is a mix of green espresso bean, hints of coffee, whiskey, slight oak, nice chocolate in there, finishing fairly coffee forward with lots of dark chocolate, slightly bitter, Very tasty.
