COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our beer was a mash-up of some of our own favourite recipes: think Weird Beard’s Sadako and all the best traits of a Brodie’s impy stout. This means it is big on the hops, big on sweetness and deliciously more-ish. In light of the festive season, we chose maple syrup instead of molasses to thicken the brew. With the maple syrup added to the boil and during fermentation, we emphasised the candied sugar qualities of the chocolate, amber and crystal malts used. You can also expect caramel, spice and some vanilla from it. Since we dictated the malt ingredients, we had Jonny decide on the hops. He suggested Galena, an American hop that rises to the occasion when used for bittering in bolder or darker beers. Together we came up with a hop schedule that ensured the beer would have a sufficiently crisp pine and wood essence to cleanly contrast, but also balance the sweetness of the malt backbone. To smoothen it up even more, we added lactose. We needn’t say it, but a lot of thought was put into brewing this lavish imperial stout and it was made ardently, with passion from both sides.

Opaque dark brown beer, big fluffy tan head. Soft palate with very mild carbonation. Soft dark malts, rich dark chocolate and modest coffee. Dark malt cream. A little chocolate fudge. Soft tangy dark fruits underneath. Finishes soft. Rich but a bit stodgy with it’s low carbonation.

sebletitje (10539) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2016
66cl bottle @ Finissons ces pétroles tasting, merci Antoine. Brune foncée, col crémeux fin café au lait. Arôme au nez malté, grillé, caramel avec de fines effluves de chocolat en retro-nasal. Palais est sec, malté, plaisant profil de café, grains concassés avec un petit ajout chocolat en fin de bouche, sucre crystal tenace comme résiduel - apparemment sirop d’érable aussi. Je note aussi un côté fruité noir et une pointe épicée rappelant la réglisse. Houblonné centré sur le noble - américain.

660ml bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Very dark brown in colour with a quickly disappearing tan head. It has a rich chocolate, vanilla, oak, liquorice and maple flavour followed by a bitter-sweet coffee, liquorice and dried fruit finish. Excellent!

phaleslu (10957) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 4, 2016
Bottle shared by Leighton at RBHQ - thanks again, Leighton! Pours a deep dark brown color with almost no head. Notes of fudge, oak, earth, a bit of soy, cocoa and dark chocolate, vanilla, and maple. Light-medium bodied, with low carbonation and a rich mouthfeel. Good stout but not outstanding.
