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!

Bottle. Pours a black beer with a light brown head. The aroma is malt, roasted and sweetness. The flavor follows the nose with additional chocolate, alcohol and notes of acidity. The palate is roasted with sweetness. Overall a good beer.

BeerBaboon (1485) - FINLAND - MAY 10, 2011
Fruit, chocolate and roasted malts. Not the best imperial stout out there. A little bit rough around the edges yet not something I would pour down the drain.

BroSpud (1596) - , Massachusetts, USA - APR 28, 2011
12oz bottle. Beautiful looking dark black pour with a pillowy, fluffy tan head. Great looking beer but not quite up there with the great ones - though still very good. A dry somewhat smoky, burnt taste more coffee than chocolate.

Thick deep black color. Nice head. Bottle. Tastes almost like an imperial porter. Walnuts, chcolate and hops. Really good. One of my favorites from sranac
