COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Double" (imperial) wheat stout.
This imperial really strikes back. From a strange country far, far away, comes the only Imperial Wheat Stout in the known universe. Once again, the Hand brewery - four guys brewing in their spare time, on an absurdly small scale - boldly goes where no brewery has gone before.

Derbeth (787) - Krakw, POLAND - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle with expiry date 07.2017. Aroma is quite intensive dark chocolate, some wood, a bit of ash, a bit of hops. Alcohol not very well hidden. Full body. Lack smoothness. A bit disappointing when compared to other beers from this brewery. This is definitely not an exceptional imperial stout.

electrotype (654) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Je ne trouve pas que le bl fait une si grande diffrence que a, ici. Cest une bire lgrement fme, assez costaude. Pas de notes de caf ou de chocolat, ou alors trs peu. Cest surtout le ct fum et la torrfaction des grains qui resort. Lalcool est perceptible mais pas dsagrable. Pas mon genre.
