American Double / Imperial Stout |  8.25% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

One of the best stouts I've had, and in a can, no less! Full of flavor, coffee, chocolate, nightcap bliss. Drink one or two of these before bed and snoooooooze.

Deep black color with a very thick nitro beige head with eternal retention and leaving laces.
Aroma with notes of coffee, roasted malts, creamy chocolate, nutmeg and cocoa.
Very flavorful and initially indicating a good complexity. Predominant notes of creamy chocolate, licorice, nutmeg, wood, mild char and lactose, coffee, brown ale yeast and a hint of sour. Very, very dry aftertaste with a mutating and long finish.
Full thick body with nitro carbonation. Alcohol of over 8% was so hidden that is almost a crime, I hope I don't commit one going back home.
I was told to taste the non-nitro version, that it is less distracting and less thick. Great beer, but I personally like less sweet and hoppier beers.
