COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deliciously smooth Imperial Stout is brewed with the finest English malt, three types of dark malts, and some smoked malt to give it a hint of smokiness. It has a rich, complex flavor accentuated with American Cascade hops. We aged it for three months to make it incredibly smooth and drinkable. It’s also named after the former Emperor of the United States (look it up!)

ChrisOs Kook Tasting. Opaque black beer, thin chocolate coloured head. Smells and tastes of dark malt but with an unfortunate side taste of gloy glue!! Malt is over toasted as well. Sweet gluey finish. A godawful mess.
