BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Societe Brewing Co.
California, United States

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.80%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
The Butcher is a big imperial stout with an overwhelming roasted malt characteristic. It has a velvety smooth, yet full, mouthfeel that hides any alcohol tones. A thick, dense, dark chocolate-colored head delivers aromas of roast, and the flavors are heavily toasty and biscuity, lingering on the tongue.

There is also some bitterness that comes from the hops and roasted barley, providing for a perceived dryness that makes the beer surprisingly easy to enjoy.
