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).

There was a serious defect in the batch I had - tasting of the adhesive used in band-aids. I would, however, be willing to try it again to re-evaluate my score. I would also appreciate some feedback from those who had a good experience with this beer or the same experience I had.

Bottle dated 1/27/14. Beer pours deep amber with minor foam ring around head. Nose is lightly fruity mixed with some earthiness. Flavor is smoke and earth..rich and developed with a smoky tart sweetness rounding out. Mouthfeel is silky.. Not too heavy or boozy for a strong ale. Overall a sipper..reminds me of a cognac or whiskey.
