On tap at the Orange Street brewpub location.
An "Imperial Schwarzbier" made in collaboration with Monkey Paw. IBU = 60

Pours near black with a good, durable head that leaves loads of sticky lacing.

Aroma: fruity dark malts; moderate complexity; high appeal; high ABV partly apparent.

Taste: fairly rich malty flavor with ints of brandy, coffee and dark fruits.
Nice light bitterness. Essentially no burnt grain.

O: excellent if a bit bitter for style.

Handsome red-brown color in the Bacchus heavy tumbler. Quite adequate foam and a spritzy mouthfeel. A wee bit syrupy but clear and has a tangy sharp ending. That roasty malt flavor is endless but has that dark edge that goes with the bitter hop aftertaste.

Strong and malty. I like this better than unamplified Schwarzbier. It's an unusual concept, but works well. Somehow this retains the dry Schwartz character rather than tasting like a big Stout. Burnt sugar with a twiggy, charred taste.

From the 32 oz jug purchased at the Morena brewing facility.
