COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Imperial Cascadian is the NW style of this brew. This is a very well balanced, extremely hoppy black ale. It is very reminiscent of a winter ale. Armored fist is a collaboration beer brewed with the good ole boys from Three Floyds Brewing out of Chicago.

From growler filled at Boneyard. Wonderful taste, and I didnt know about the 3 Floyds connection until I viewed this beers ratings. No wonder they have a couple of Dark Lord Day posters in the tasting room. A truly wonderful quaff from a great brewery!

Three Floyds and Boneyard, not a bad collaboration. This is an extremely dark, bitter, and strong beer.

On tap at Apex in Portland for shawtank celebration. Snifter glass. Black with minor tan head and simple lacing. Aroma has vanilla and a little coffee/chocolate (although that could be impacted primarily by the visual). Plenty of hoppy resin notes as well. Taste is a quality balance of bitter chocolate, dark fruit, pine resin, and grapefruit rind. Very well hidden alcohol. Hops provide an impressive bite especially towards the finish. One of the highest ABV black IPAs Ive tried and its also one of the best. Highly recommended. Fist bumps to Boneyard and Three Floyds.

Dark brown color. Clear. Two-fingered, bubbley head with good retention. Aroma is cinnamon,vanilla and resin. Slight peanut butter. Smells clean. Taste piney and sweet. Medium-bodied. Average carbonation. Slightly drawn out bitter finish. Reminds me of a christmas tree. Sticky feel on palate. As much as this reminds me of the winter season i wish it was closer to christmas Lol.

McWorta (1601) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 28, 2016
Deep amber to copper coloured with a creamy off white head. Aromas of caramel, resin, hints of bitter chocolate, fruits and spruce/pine develop. Softly carbonated with a rather crisp, slick and smooth texture offering a medium-full body. Lightly sweet building up a nice hoppy resinous fruit punch. Lasting finish, drying out.
