This Imperial Stout is brewed with pale malt, wheat, and a variety of specialty grains.
A blend of US and German hops lend bitterness and spice, while kettle additions of lactose help to sweeten the deal.
In the pint, it’s raisin black with a honeyed edge – like recirculated engine oil. The aroma conjures imagery of pancakes doused in maple syrup; and the tastebuds largely concur.
A treacle like viscosity bolsters the offering, as do lashings of coffee liqueur.
It’s unabashedly decadent and tremendously well balanced for its size.
