A beer that won our head brewer Bryan awards back in his home brew days. With honey, molasses and freshly roasted coffee beans added to the boil this is a complex, lightly carbonated imperial stout weighing in at 9.2%. It was also a big part of brewing our light weight beer Dark Hopfler, so if this goes down well, we hope to brew them both again soon. We have also hidden some of this away in a Heaven Hill barrel and an Ardbeg barrel, so keep an eye out for them sometime too.

On tap at Weird Beard Tap Takeover, Bottle Shop, Bermondsey, Saturday 7th February 2015 Pours black with a really creamy beige head. Leather and tobacco on the nose with a little bit of stock cube noted. In the mouth this is a little bit meaty but with a surprisingly lengthy bitterness, quite soft mouthfeel, hoppy finish it’s a good assertive impy stout. A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8
