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).

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Drinking a bottle that is about 7 or 8 months old

Appearance: half way from a burnt orange to a garnet red color. a finger or so of a tan foamy head. fairly strong clarity

Smell: strong sweet caramel, maple syrup, vanilla, oak, and some astringent alcohol

Taste: opens with a sweet syrupy mess of caramel, vanilla, maple, and other sugars. some oak character along with a hint of alcohol. all of this is underlain by smokey earthy malts.

Mouthfeel: thick and creamy. some slight alcohol warmth. smoke lingers behind

Overall: I think I would like this beer immensely if it weren't for the smoked malts. the syrup and sweet aspects work well with the barrel aspect. I just can't get the balance between them and the smoked malt
