COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Silhouette™ is as dark as a moonless night. Brewed in the style of a Russian Imperial Stout, aromas of coffee, molasses, chocolate, and prune meld with an intense dark roasted character. This complex beer is rich, full bodied and will warm the senses. We will be releasing two versions of Silhouette™, barreled and un-barreled. The barreled version was brewed in 2011 and has been aged in 12-year old oak bourbon barrels. It is masterfully blended by our brewmaster Matt Hall. Look for bourbon, leather, and oak notes. The barreled version will be available from the brewery in 750ml bottles. There will be 1500 individually numbered bottles available.

Pours dark with a beige head. Chocolate on the nose, a little toasty too. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Somewhat bittersweet on the swallow with a pleasant lingering. Overall a good representative of the style. Might cellar this and see how it tastes down the road.

Bottle at RBWG 2016. Thanks Peter. Nose is very chocolate with a list of boost initially. Taste is like a marshmallow with soft caramel on the tongue. Great.

Medium Coffee/chocolate malt aroma with slight alcohol warmth. Medium low to medium coffee flavor with low alcohol warmth. Very deliciously balanced. Initial sweetness with a slight alcohol finish. This is a terrific beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours almost black with an average tan head. Very smooth on the palate with medium body. Tastes of caramel and dark chocolate. A little sweet. I knew little of Lift Bridge before trying this bottle and I was very favorably impressed.

Bomber from Eric during the 4th weekend family get-together. 2015 bottle number 1702. Cola colored pour, tan head. Aroma has sweet caramel, molasses, light tar and cocoa. Taste is of bakers chocolate, light espresso, caramel and molasses. Full.bodied, quiet nice. A little alcohol. Finishes bitter and sweet. Big fan of a solid brew from a brewery Eric talked up. 15.2

Bottle to glass. Pours a thin medium to deep brown color with a light tan head. Aroma is roasty, touch of coffee, chocolate. Flavor has a bitter roastiness to it, with a hint of cocoa. A bit thin, but overall very nice. Thanks Drew!
