Russian Imperial Stout |  8.00% ABV

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.

From 10/01/14 notes. 12 oz bottle left over from Winter 2013, poured into a snifter.

Pours a dark brown, almost black color, with less than an inch of dark tan head and low to moderate carbonation evident. Roasted malts, sweet chocolate , dark fruits, dark chocolate, and toasted malts. Taste has some vanilla and cream, and more dark than sweet milk chocolate. Full body and low carbonation, super smooth. Great mouthfeel

Overall a very good stout. Wish the taste had more sweet than bitter chocolate but otherwise very good. Bet it would be great barrel aged. Would like to have it again.
