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.

Served from a 12 oz bottle from Sea Trader Liquor & Deli. The appearance is a deep black with a frothy dark brown head. Flavors and aromas are a very fruity with sweet dark fruits, especially dates and raisins. Some subtle chocolate and anise notes in there as well. Medium to full bodied with a decent creaminess to it. A real decent old style irs.

VinegarStroke (345) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Bottle: dense black beer with medium to light head and moderate lace. Dark, roasted malty nose. Mocha. Very dark chocolate or cocoa powder. Hint of hops. The nose is almost every brooding. Dry palate. Very dense and high bitterness. A lot of weight but not balanced. Lacks the creaminess to match the bitterness.

Fatehunter (1690) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Pours a thin tan head on a black body. The aroma is loaded with roasted malt, coffee and chocolate. The taste builds from chocolate sweet, to bitter chocolate and coffee and finishes dry roasted malt with a touch of bitter. The texture is silky smooth. An outstanding stout.

"slight hoppiness atop a medium bodied sweet impy stout. overall a nice beer for an ok price, but far from elite for an imperial stout, my favorite style."
