Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
American-style Imperial Stout. This is a hopped-up version of a classic Imperial Stout. Starting with Halcyon Pale, a traditional British base malt that adds a toasty, biscuity character to the beer, we add dark roasted and caramel malts for notes of coffee, chocolate, and dark fruits. Generous use of American hops, Simcoe, Chinook and Columbus, add bold but complementary flavors and aromas that bring everything together in a full bodied and richly complex ale for the quiet off season here on the coast.

Had this on tap. Completely opaque, black midnight appearance with a caramel colored head. Aroma screams of an extremely malty presence. Tart, dark fruits, cherry, and fig notes filled the thick flavor. Grainy finish, with noticeable alcohol presence. This is my first brew by Kane, consider me impressed!

Pitch black, small tan head and lots of dotted lace. Notes of burnt caramel, coffee, chocolate, light cherry and nail polish on the back end. Creamy, dry and smooth. This would be a world beater if it weren't for an off putting and noticeable note of nail polish on the finish that I didn't get in the barrel aged version.
