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).

Pours a transparent dark rust orange color with a thin head that dissipates immediately.

Smells of maple, vanilla, and an accompanying boozy burn.

Strong oak flavor with hints of vanilla, maple, and a warm booze finish.

Mouthfeel is lush and velvety, goes down very smooth.

Overall, a very good warmer, but I would love to see what a year or two does to this!
