Brewed by:
Wandering Star Brewing Company
Massachusetts, United States

Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.60%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Berkshire County homebrewer Bert Holdredge won the ‘Brewers Choice’ prize in the 2011 New York City Homebrew Competition with this recipe (the prize was for a commercial batch to be brewed on our system) – but was disqualified from the official BJCP competition since he’d forgotten to remove a label from a bottle. A dangerously drinkable pitch-black stout with rich chocolate and peat smoke notes, and just a hint of alcohol warmth.

06/27/12 On tap, this is lighter than most Imperials I have come to know & love, but who cares about labels? This is a very likable brew, which in fact, qualifies it as a year round choice.

On-tap 3/3/2012 at Track 84, in Warwick, RI served in a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a deep dark black color, with a thin brown head that fades slowly and leaves a thick on the glass.

S: The aroma contains chocolate, roasted malts and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with strong flavors of milk and dark chocolate followed by a hearty roasted malt character. There’s a touch of smokiness in the background. The hops presence is mild but complementary and brings a good balance. The after-taste is bitter-sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium-to-heavy body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, slightly filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a nice stout to drink for a while.
