On tap at Concordia Alehouse in Portland, OR. For the record, this was not billed as the Old Growth on the beer list.

I have a new entry on my very favorite Imperial Stouts list. What a dandy brew!

I've never quaffed a stout quite like this one. Huge chocolate/spice aroma, nice creamy medium-full body with moderate carbonation and little lace left on the pint glass. Fabulous roasty, sweet, chocolate, spice (cinnamon, nutmeg?) taste that just hits the spot. Not particularly hoppy, but an adequate bite from the alcohol, roast barley/black patent/spice. A great balance of flavors that is complex, yet seamless. I really can't quite do this beer justice in a review, so why doesn't everybody go blow all the kegs of this stuff in Oregon and convince Caldera to ramp up the production?

Serving type: on-tap
