In 1682 William Penn signed a treaty with the Native American leaders of the Shackamaxon village, which later became the district of Kensington, where our brewery is located today. This is a rich, dark brew made with chocolate and Munich malts and aged on French oak. We hope you enjoy sipping on this full bodied imperial stout.

Ed5388 (3428) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2015
12oz bottle from Manahawkin Spirits. Pours black with a finger of foamy tan head. Aroma is full of bitter sweet chocolate, dark roasted malts, oak, and leather. Taste of dry wood, black coffee, leather, cardboard, and hints of caramel. Liking the aroma a little more then the taste on this one. Still pretty solid though

"Overall, a slightly below average imperial stout, though it did have some age (maybe too much?) on it. Malty chocolate and raisiny sweetness were the dominant players with little to no hop balance. It tasted less than 10% would imply, and had a slighy soy character in the aroma. Not bad at all, but not great for my favorite style."

Aroma is great, appearance is a little thin, flavor is a good decent middle of the road stout. Quite nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sampled at Boises Imperial Stout get together, over 120 bottles to choose from. Going with the flow on this rating. This was one of my contributions to the cause.

peteinSD (1469) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Bottle. Black pour with a quickly fading tan head. Aroma is heavy on the dark fruit and raisin with some degraded chocolate. Taste is mostly dark fruit, raisin, and plum with some hop bitterness and slight chocolate. Mouthfeel is neither coating nor thin - somewhere between. Subpar imperial stout.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2014
12 oz bottle. Dark brown with tan foam. Nose is coffee, cola and dark chocolate. Creamy medium body with a sharp tang. Taste is dark roast, prune, tobacco and hay. Sweet dark fruit contrasts with burnt, bitter notes but doesnt quite come together. This might be my last appearance on the Top 50 Raters of Big Beers.

Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2014
On tap at Barcade. Really enjoyed this one. Aroma of burnt toast, rye, and sllight coffee. Pours black and thin with a small dusty head. Taste is exactly like those hard burnt sourdough Amish pretzels. Roast mouthfeel and kind of dry. Very unique. I like it.
