English Strong Ale |  11.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
For this beer, we use maple syrup from Red Brook Farm -- Sam's family farm in Western Massachusetts, peat-smoked barley, juniper berries and vanilla.

Immort is fermented with a blend of English and Belgian yeasts, then aged in the big oak tanks at the brewery.

The sweet and earthy flavors meld magnificently in the Immort Ale. But be warned, the ABV is 11%, so after one or two you may start feeling immortal (even though we promise you won't be).

Appearance- Pours a glistening amber, brighter mahogony. Slight, thinner tan / off-white head, dissipates quickly. Lots of suspended particles in beer, fine lacing on sides of glass.
Aroma- Peat smoked malts, creamy vanilla and caramel malt aromas. Some brighter berry type fruit notes present as well. Earthy and woody tones underneath, syrupy sweetnees throughout.
Taste- Sweet notes of maple syrup and vanilla creaminess, less forward but present are smoky malts. Bitter fruits and oakiness come through, nice warming alcohol on the finish.
Feel- Thick, creamy, and syrupy, not only does the maple syrup come through on the taste, but also gives beer a slick and thick feel. Moderate to lower carbonation.
Overall- Several different flavors coming together on this beer, and its executed quite well. The syrupy sweetness balances well w/ vanilla/caramel creaminess. Oakiness and bitter fruits create a nice counter-balance to the sweetness. Nice smoky undertones, a real pleasent and warming sipper.

Smoke flavor came through pretty strong and I do not like smoked beers. Not very tasty even after I let it open up a little. Dogfish Head usually knocks them out of the park, just not this time.
