To celebrate our 1000th brew we have created our first ever Imperial Stout. This challenging beer combines much of what we have learned from brewing the previous 999 beers. One Thousand is a huge beer with rich aromas and flavours, combined with multiple layers of complexity. Visually this beer is a thing of beauty with its oily black appearance and rich creamy mocha head. The complex flavours are a melding of roasted and caramelized malts mixed with the strong influence of aromatic hops.

Pours deep black with a mocha head. Nose is coffee, vanilla and hint of dark cherry. Taste is rich smooth coffee and dark chocolate, hint of sweetness and a warm boozy finish. Booze is still well hidden however, bold but brilliant

Right up there with Murrays as a super high quality high abv local beer. Close to jet black in colour with a thin mocha head...classic! Served a touch cold so the aromas aren’t particularly expressive but the is enough coffee and chocolate to make it clear this is impy stout. Palate is a wall of flavour - chocolate, roast, orange rind, buzzy minerals - straight from the playbook. Hardness a touch on the finish with some dark chocolate. Not particularly long in the palate but certainly memorable.

Bottle from Mane Liquor. A super charred and ashy IS with mild vanilla sweetness and coffee and plum on the finish. All comes together nicely for such a big beer and as with all high ABV Bridge Rd beers, it is hidden well. Good stuff

Bottle. Pretty solid Imperial Stout, exactly what you’d expect with roasty bitterness and a bit of sweetness due to the high abv. Well worth trying!

Maris (1596) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 26, 2015
From a 330ml bottle on 26/3/2015.Pours close to balck with a small tan head. The nose features some light caramel and chocolate. Take a sip and you know you’re dealing with a big beer. There’s a good dose of sweet caramel against a background of dark chocolate and roasted malt, some vanilla, soy, with some hints of dark fruit and red wine. There’s a pretty good sweet/bitter balance going on, with the latter relatively sharp and a touch salty. While not too hard to down, the fact that it’s 11 plus per cent doesn’t necessarily surprise. Has a creamy texture and softish carbonation. All up, a very solid impy.

fletchfighters (1590) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2015
355ML bottle Black with ruby highlights, short lived light tan head. Some ABV lacing Nose is burnt eggs, burnt rubber, burnt roast. Chocolate malt balls left to go stale. Taste is just as stale. Kind of salty, kind of sweet, kind of not good in many ways. Lots of alcohol in the taste. Palate smooths out a bit. Charred rubber and chocolate. Not good. Hard to drink.

Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - JAN 21, 2015
Pours totally black with a brown head. Aroma is malt, coffee, chocolate, caramel, roasty and some dark fruits. Taste is medium sweet leading to a big roasty finish. Excellent!

Muggus69 (2759) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2015
1300th rate, managed to get my filthy mitts on this bad boy.
Undoubtedly looks the part - menacing, as any imperial stout should; dense espresso-like deep tan head casually saunters atop an opaque jet back body.
There’s just so much to love about the aroma; freshly roasted coffee, cooked citrus, melon & tropical fruit hops, dark chocolate, raisins, sticky date pudding.
Properly staunch palate to it; sticky, oily, texture, drying roast acrid quality, long on the finish, drawn out with warming booze.
Smooooth on the body; plenty of sweet toasty malt, dark chocolate, rich espresso with undertones of licorice, raisin, dried fig & date. Luscious finish, dried out with a touch of alcohol.
Tremendous stout, up there with the best in the country, very much worth of their 1000th brew to date!
