Style: American Double / Imperial Stout
Alcohol by volume (ABV): 8.00%
Availability: Limited (brewed once)
Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Imperial Oyster Stout is made with pale, caramel, roasted, and chocolate malts. Oats are also added to give the beer a fuller and sweeter taste. The roasted malts give the beer its dark color as well as its intense flavor and aroma. The flavors of toffee and chocolate are prevalent but not overpowering. The beer is hopped with Willamette hops. Since the beer gets so much flavor from the malts there is not a lot of hop flavor. There is just enough bitterness to compliment the sweetness of the malt. Finally, freshly shucked LA oysters were added to the boil. The salt from the oysters gives the beer a more intense aroma and mouthfeel.
