BEER INFO

Tröegs Brewing Company
Pennsylvania, United States

Style: Russian Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.90%

Notes / Commercial Description:
As we spiral further toward the end of the Mayan calendar, Tröegs is brewing up a special beer to commemorate the expiration of planet Earth. Celebrate the countdown to extinction and raise a goblet of this colossal Russian Imperial Stout as we plummet into oblivion. If your tongue doesn’t disintegrate as a result of the birthday party cheesecake jellybean BOOM, it most certainly will wreak major havoc on your taste buds. ¿Impending Descent? is as enormous, face-melting, and palate-numbing as it sounds. If there ever was a last beer to enjoy before the apocalypse, this is it!

Into my Lost Abbey glass she goes.

Pitch black and syrupy, topped by one inch of mocha-colored fizz.

Short ribs. Smoky meat, tangy barbecue sauce, a touch of soy. Bitter cocoa, lots of alcohol.

More chocolates here. Cocoa nibs meet smoke and a hint of metallic tang, then give way to bits of vanilla and date. Flashes pf teriyaki. The swallow brings the bitter, both from spicy hops and torched malt. Smooth finish.

Medium body, good silky quality. Fizzy as it moves. Hot on the tongue from booze.

A little boozy. Very heavy in flavor. A big, black beast.
