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.

3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Sampled from a 500ml bottle. Dark brown body with a moderatley thick-textured (but not deep) mocha colored head. Nose of mocha, bready notes, wheat and oat are there, as is some moderate level of char and roast, with a milk chocolate note as well. Creamy at first sip but then quickly full of char and roast, turning starchy and pasty on the tongue. More smoky milk and roast in the back, finishing with a lacitc sourness that basically ruins it for me.

Wygląd: czarny z rubinowymi przebłyskami Zapach: Czekolada, pralinki, śliwka suszona Piana.: Dosyć trwała, ładny lacing Smak: Mnóstwo cudnej suszonej śliwki, czekolada, pralinki, czerwone owoce. Dobre piwo w dobrej cenie (butelka 500 ml)

tightslice (1432) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 21, 2017
Bottle from BevMo! in Menlo Park, CA. Aroma is dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, banana, herbal liqueur. Huge flavors of dark chocolate and coffee with hints of herbal liqueurs / licorice. Too easy to drink.

GhostS (513) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - OCT 15, 2017
Aromă ușoară, cu multă ciocolată cu lapte, multă dulceață de fructe negre, liqueur cu ciocolată, note de vanilie și butoi. Gust intens, moderat și plăcut dulce (dulceață de fructe negre și miere întunecată), cu puțin malț ars înăcrit, multă ciocolată neagră, amăreală arsă, note de vanilie și lemn ars. Bună și bine făcută, destul de intensă.

CraftBeerNick (2803) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2017
Bottle at home, 1st October 17. Pours black. Aroma is chocolate, banana, yeast notes, spice, bread dough. Taste is like a German wheat beer, but hybrid with imperial stout, cocoa, liquorice, banana, grain, wheat, quite dry. Great take on an imperial stout, good job.

acemilan (481) - POLAND - SEP 23, 2017
Czarne, nieprzejrzejrzyste, z ładną pianą. Aromat czekoladowy, kawowy (głównie) z nutami pszenicznymi. Smak czekolada z kawą, wszystko mega delikatne. Solidne naprawdę, ale dość specyficzne.

mariuspoenari (2969) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 13, 2017
Very dark mahogany with a short-lived thin dark tan head. Notes of dark chocolate, smooth dark coffee, dark fruit, plums, dark cherries, a little bit of licorice, ash. Full body, intensely roasty, medium to low carbonation, smooth texture.

4.5
sam_uk93 (44) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Batch 943 Extremely dark brown nearly black. Smell is sweet, awesome smokey. Taste is wonderful smokey, slight blueberry that lingers on tongue. Slight warming booziness in throat. Thick, full bodied. Fantastic.

3.7
ironcontra (450) - ATL, Georgia, USA - SEP 3, 2017
Rather subtle (mean in a good way this time), semi-dry, licorice, coffee, dark chocolate, a bit of berry tartness in there, medium-low body, low carbo, but the latter actually work for this spin of stout

PhillyCraft (7909) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2017
Backlog, Bottles in 09-10. This was one of our favorites back in the day. Pours a deep black color with a reddish tinted head. Notes of heavy molasses, coffee, roast, chocolate, grass, and dark fruits. Medium to fuller body with a lasting finish.
