Notes/Commercial Description:
There are few styles of beer more flavorful than Imperial Stout. Our thick, rich version was brewed with plenty of caramel and roasted malts and subtly spiced with Nugget and Cascade hops. We’ve accentuated the natural smokiness of the brew by adding a small amount of beechwood-smoked malt. At 22 degrees starting gravity and 8.0% alcohol by volume, this beer boasts flavors of chocolate and coffee, along with raisins and dried fruit soaked in sherry.

2013 vintage. Beautiful beer. Tar, licorice, and deeply roasted malts accompany coffee grounds and dark chocolate in the aroma. There's a bit of a savory soy note. Flavor is fairly sweet and roasty upfront, with a buttery, nutty, dark chocolate note mid palate, and a fairly bitter finish. Metallic notes detract somewhat, but there's enough flavor to redeem. Vinous undertones add complexity. Fairly complex stout. Not sure it'll age any longer.
