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).

5oz pour at Belmont Station.

Pours a clear, burnt orange with a thin, bone white head.

The honey and juniper definitely come through and blend well with the caramel malts.

The juniper berries and peat-smoking are quite dominant in the taste and take away from any honey, vanilla or caramel malt character.

A medium body with very light, prickly carbonation.

The nose was promising, but unfortunately the taste was over whelmed by the juniper berries.
