Traditional Imperial Stout circa 1850 (for Vasily Arkhipov)

My favorite beer that we make is our traditional Imperial Stout. A timeless beauty that needs no adjucts or gimmicks. Brewed with only the finest English Maris Otter, brown and black malts and firmly bittered with East Kent Goldings hops.
Coffee, cocoa and some fruit from the yeast in the aroma, the flavor is dense with espresso, dark chocolate fudge and bitter German licorice candies. Dangerously drinkable despite being 11% ABV.
Past releases are drinking fantastic with 3-4 years of aging but it isn’t necessary.387807106_816309966955761_708487028730427323_n
