Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 08-19-2001

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.

Pours a nice deep black, with no light getting through. The head is dark tan and burns off quickly, leaving only a bit around the rim with no lacing. The aroma comes into its own as it warms, with nice coffee and sweet alcohol notes. The taste is big on dark roasted malt, with some deeper burnt sugars. The body has a little oily quality and just a hint of bite from the alcohol.
