American Double / Imperial Stout |  8.00% ABV

Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is the kind of beer that gives the word "stout" a reputation. Extra generous quantities of barley malt, followed by vigorous fermentation leaves this "imperial" heavy weight with 8% alcohol A.B.V. and a body as full as chocolate bread pudding. A complimentary and complex array of bitter notes comes form potent American hops, earthy British hops, black-roasted malts and, of course, coffee. Santa Fe Brewing Company uses only top-quality ingredients like organically grown East Timor coffee beans blended with New Guinea coffee beans, locally roasted by O'hori's Coffee House. Its heavenly flavor and aroma can't be beat or imitated.

Santa Fe nails it once again. Such a subtle Stout, perfect balance of all elements. Easy drinker, good introduction to the style as interpreted in the Southwest. Plus it's in a can. Get some!

Good! Sweet, smooth, chocolatey and coffee. Would like a bit more bitterness on the finish. And a bit too sweet. Creamy. Pretty easy to drink.
