Notes & Commercial Description:

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

As dark as the legend of Blackbeerd himself, behold the Imperial Stout. Sweet malts battle roasted grain on the decks of yer tongue. Like a blast from a cannon, hop are followed by smoked malt. Hold on to yer booty, a dark stouts a brewin'.

This Blackbeerd aged one year in 2nd use Blanton's barrels. As to be expected it is more oak and less bourbon. Still delicious.

This is my kind of stout. Much drier than folks seem to love these days but I tend to prefer that. Much more lively and drinkable for it. The head and carbonation on this are surprisingly strong for an imperial stout; like the froth on a cappucino. The shift to Blanton's is perhaps part of my love for this. The tobacco, honey, spice, and fudgey notes come through. This has always been a stout driven by various chocolate notes but this one is the most vanilla and fudge dominant.
