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).

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.

12oz bottle 2012 aged one year. Pours a slight cloudy rich copper amber with a quickly fading razor thin head. Aroma is of sweet caramel malt, yeast, fruity some toasted vanilla oaked essence and dark fruit and mild maple notes, some smokey notes as well. Taste the same as aroma with a bit of earthy herbal hops bitterness and a bit of brandy like notes in the flavor. The palate is a full and rich and smooth with moderate carbonation and there is some bubble effervescence. Finish is the same as taste with some smoked flavors as it warms up with a lingering brandy like sweetness and mild bitterness on the end. Not as sweet as some other barley wines as this is labeled but very good. Overall a very good smooth and easy drinking and pleasant bw. Very nice, I feel immortal already. enjoy

Almost a rauchbier to me, I get loads of earthy smoke and oak.
