COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at Barcade, Philadelphia. Thick tan head sits on the stout and laced the sides as I drank. Deep roasted malts filled the air as I inhaled. Crazy amounts of roasted barley and malt. Flavor of cocoa, deep barley, roasted grain, semi sweet chocolate with a light oak in the finish. I really enjoyed sipping this because the 10% was nowhere to be found. I had to remind myself to sip. This is without a doubt the best beer from this brewery. Nice.

Dark black-brown body, medium khaki head, spotty lacing. Assertive chocolate, some roast, and oak. Medium to full bodied, moderate carbonation, lingering roasted finish. Straightforward and pleasant.

This one poiured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was lots of anise, black patent, and light alcoholc. Flavor was fairly roasted, light dark chocolate, and some booze. A pretty good impy, and very impressive from this brewer.

Bottle pour into snifter..no idea when this was bottled but labeled vintage on side of bottle..dark black color..little to no head as expected..nose is very enjoyable..chocolate..cocoa..bourbon notes..wood..oak..hint of coffee and vanilla..really liking everything about the aroma..mouthfeel/palate is smooth..not hot and hides the abv very well..however it was a bit thinner than expected and the nose dominated the rest of the experience..like the bottle..like the Indian..and will definitely seek this out again in the future..good local imperial stout..solid nightcap..well done..

Opaque black as night; thick foamy tan head looks so beautiful; flavor is so rich with hints of licorice; the alcohol comes through as well as some acidicness; aroma has hints of chocolate; finishes dry toasty yummy

Dark pour, brown head. Pretty decent stout here. I get some licorice, charred oak, asphalt, tar, dark chocolate, some bittering hops, lots of roasted malt. Just enough sweetness and bitterness.
