Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Rich, velvety and deliciously complex, Old Heathen (8% ABV) is a truly distinctive stout. We use seven types of malt and two varieties of hops to bring forth this big brew. Quite robust and roasty on the palate, Old Heathen Imperial Stout has a wonderfully fruity nose and a moderately dry finish. The taste is highly complex. Perhaps you’ll even discern notes of espresso or chocolate.

beautiful pour. Thick black, pours like oil. Has a sheen to it. Burnt brown. Thick creamy head of mousse like foam. Falls slowly, hugs the glass and leaves lace. Crisp toasty bread. Sugar sweetens the malt scent. Nose is sweet chocolate, caramel, toasty nuts. Soft bread. Drinks with a touch of molasses for an underpinning, sweet malty and deep. Little bit of warmth as it finishes form the alcohol. That molasses is the last thing on the palate with a bit of stickiness.
