A jet black imperial stout with a dark caramel coloured head. The aroma is of prunes and dark fruticake with a smooth treacle like taste and a lasting warm bitter finish.
Back in November our friends at De Molen in The Netherlands made the journey over to Scotland to brew our strongest beer to date. De Molen are renowned for brewing big world beating stouts, and we felt that it was fitting that we brew one together on our new kit. This beer was all about seeing how far we could push our new kit on ABV and IBUs. The result is a 9.5% Imperial Stout that is a modern take on a classic style: bold new world hops such as Sorachi Ace and Calypso add a unique dimension to the rich meaty body of the beer. We are also doing a wee barrel ageing experiment with this one and have left some to age in a Grappa barrel with some brettanomyces for a few months. Watch this space…..

nimbleprop (9148) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 3, 2017
12oz bottle pours a viscous black with plenty of creamy brown head. Nose has raisins and molasses, booze, malt, licorice, a little jammy. Flavor is quite meaty, black pudding and wild boar sausage, big with sweet black licorice and molasses, chocolate covered raisins. Full bodied and a touch sweet. Everything you want in an imperial stout.

ianwelby (1646) - SCOTLAND - OCT 27, 2017
Opaque black beer, thin light brown head. Smells of chocolate, malt, wood, fruit, alcohol. It's very smooth. Dried fruit, you can taste that it's been barrel aged, earthy malt, chocolate, a slight tangy-sour edge to it and surprisingly little backtaste. This is a big, beefy stout that goes down way too easily for the strength of it.
