Heavy CrownHeavy Crown
Notes: Heavy crown is our head brewer Joe’s first stout brewed at Torch & Crown. It’s an Imperial Stout brewed with vanilla, coffee, cacao, and a small dose of lactose. This beer is big and roasty with a nice balance of the adjunct additions. The lactose adds a velvet touch to the mouthfeel without making the beer overly sweet.

2d review. my 1st for brewer.
a) A for crown over black body.
s) Additions are just subtle enough on a back ground of roast. for coffee lovers.
t) Wish for more roast and hops to counter the sweet, but still it's a right mix. Coffee-based dessert wine like.
All there cocoa, vanilla, prune.
f) Feel is the top highlight here for body, and ticklish weight like making love.
o) It adds up to a great I stout.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light tan head that left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderately strong aromas of dark coffee beans are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and is very coffee-like but has notes of lactose and cacao nibs that seem like someone added dashes of cream and sugar to your morning joe.
M: It feels medium-bodied and silky smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I really liked the smooth mouthfeel of this beer and all of the coffee flavors, which were balanced off to some degree by the addition of cocoa nibs and lactose. It is also quite drinkable considering its strength as no alcohol is perceptible in the taste.
