COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Imperial Stout is an impressive, ebony black beer with gorgeous ruby hued highlights. Brewed with several kinds of rich caramel and roasted malts, this robust, full-bodied stout is packed with sensuous chocolate and coffee flavors. The complex roastiness of this brew is interwoven with rich toffee, subtle dark fruit and a hint of anise to round off the malt experience. The intense maltiness is balanced with a floral hop flavor and the aroma from Cascade and Golding hops. With an immense original gravity of 23 Plato, this opulent beer finishes at 10% alcohol by volume. Imperial Stout is a lavish blend of sumptuous flavors, it is silky smooth and deceptively strong.

chinchill (1630) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 27, 2013
12 oz bottle served in a snifter. Poured brown-tinged black; opaque with a thin tan head that has weak retention and leaves little lacing. The aroma is a nice, boozy mix of dark roasted malts and chocolate with hints of coffee, dates and figs. Strongly flavored with dark roasted malts, with some burnt grain and a touch of smokiness; Hints of dark fruits (although less obvious than in the nose), dark chocolate and coffee. A trace of dryness and hops in the finish. High ABV is well hidden. Full bodied; with suitable carbonation. O - This rich stout makes an excellent sipper. Well-hidden alcohol.
