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.

A 12.5% bottle. Opaque black beer with a thick chocolate coloured foamy head. The head is creamy and tastes of sweet chocolate and has a fruity undertone. When agitated the beer produces a surprising nose of pineapple! Beer is soft and silky. A sweet chocolatey start with a little pineapple coming through. Followed by mildy roasty malt and a little coffee. Complex, sweet. Dry semi bitter finish. Quite a beer!
