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.

Aragh (260) - POLAND - NOV 26, 2015
Kolor hebanowy, piana brunatna, gęsta, utrzymująca się i oblepiająca szkło. W zapachu mocno kawa i whisky, trochę czekolady. W smaku dominuje aromat whisky, trochę kawy objawia się w kwaśności, a goryczy praktycznie nie ma. Jest też niewysoka, ale wyraźna kwaśność wiśniowa i odrobina czekoladowej słodyczy w tle. Generalnie dobre, ale zbyt zdominowane przez alkohol (sam w sobie przyjemny), przysłaniający inne smaki.

(HaandBryggeriet Dark Force) Bottle 500 ml at home, served into a snifter ABV 9% Black coloured body, tall brown head with good density and average retention. Aroma of chocolate, light hops, alcohol after a swirl of the glass, light vanilla. Taste of chocolate, not much wheat traceable, roasted malts on the finish, alcohol, nice. Thick body with good carbonation, sticky on the palate. Good!

Pitch black appearance with little head. Complex tastes of milk chocolate, sweet, roasted malt, coffee, some caramel, nuts and vanilla. Full body, a fair amount of carbonation and a lasting aftertaste of wheat and milk chocolate. Fantastic double wheat stout.

bastarda (502) - Freiburg, GERMANY - OCT 10, 2015
kindly given by jaghana (7/14), thanks a lot; bb 2/2016 and brewed 2 years and 8 months ago; more weizendoppelbock than imp stout nose: dried, sweet pears, some honey, and, presumably due to age, a strong Red Martini centre on dense whafts of butterscotch. Age also seems to have somewhat disintegrated this Wheat Stout’s taste components. Result: the impression of drinking some heavier white wine like Muscadet after having eaten bitter chocolate and a bit of licorice. Weak coffee roast aftertaste; not bad, though. A lot of alcohol heat. Winelike. Worth a younger revisit.

Bottle. Pitch black in colour, small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and lots of cherries and plums. Softly carbonated, very smooth. Full bodied, rather sweet in the finish. Very good.

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2017 kran w jabeerwocky. ciemne z mierna piana, w aromatach raczej delikane ale bardzo fajnie slodkawe: owoce ciemne + jakas slodycz a la lukrecja czy cos w ten desen, ciezkie do zdefiniowania ale fajne. do tego w tle kakao, moze jakas kawa z mlekiem (??? skad tu kawa z mlekiem?). smaku delikatniejsze jeszcze niz w aromacie, ale analogiczne do aromatow. raczej w strone wodnista niz pelna. dobre. i nic ponad to.
