COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is our Imperial Stout that we age in conditioning tanks with oak staves. This adds a classic character of old world aging without the Bourbon tones. This black ale is about 12% ABV and very rich in roasted and chocolate malt tones. Velvety smooth and able to be aged for years. For now this will be a seasonal beer offering.

3.1
Palme (4816) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 11, 2017
On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. As good as black in the glass this. On the top a small islandy and sidesticking beigeish dark filmy top. It smells really dark burnt sugary. Dark candied sugar, hints of molasses and leather. Smells quite dry almost a little minerallic, roasted also of course. Tastes a little the same. Quite on the​ dry side. Charred and roasted all the way through. Definitely minerallic. It has a nice mild oily texture in the mouth and it’s above average on the growing carbonation. Alcohol and burnt tail. 11.05.2017
