Say hello to the Bearded Lady, our uncompromisingly big and beautiful Imperial Stout. Born from our Dark Arts recipe she uses masses of magical malts to deliver deep chocolate, rich coffee and vinous berry flavours all complemented by a balanced yet subtly spicy hop profile. Powerful, robust, intriguing; yet decadently smooth and sumptuous, the lady demands respect…

Tmoney99 (13602) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Tap sample. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy tan head that mostly lasted with good to excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a solid beer.

OPIE788 (337) - Ohio, USA - NOV 21, 2013
On draft. Poured dark black with a dark brown head. Smelled like a cold cup of unsweetened black coffee. Tasted like REALLY strong black coffee with a good dry bitterness. Really good but...$10 for a 9oz pour is a bit much.
