COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mt. Marcy, Skylight, Algonquin...Majestic Adirondack High Peaks - They are the inspiration for our "High Peaks" series, a line of beers that are bigger, more complex and flavorful; beers that are meant to be sipped and savored. The second in our series, Saranac Imperial Stout, is brewed with eleven malts to balance a delicious chocolate and coffee roasted flavor with the spicy herbal character of the generous kettle and dry hops. At 50 IBU’s this beer captures the essence of the Adirondacks. Enjoy!

kiwianer (3340) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2012
Es riecht röstmalzig und etwas zuckrig-alkoholisch, geschmacklich ist es auch röstig, flach, aber leider viel zu süß-zuckrig, das eigentlich nicht so schlechte Aroma wird durch den Zucker gestört. Test vom 18.9.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,8,9,8,9,8 - 8,40

A deep dark stout with a thin compact brown head. In aroma, smooth soy sauce and chocolate, espresso coffee, with grassy hops. In mouth, a nice and smooth bitter chocolate with licorice notes, molasses, grassy hops, very nicely balanced. Nice!

Suttree (5195) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Black, with a huge brown head. Smells like vanilla and coffee and hickory. Taste a bit on the dry, bitter side, with a lot of woody flavors mixed with coffee, dark chocolate, and a bit of vanilla. Surprisingly not bad.
