Ale of the 2 Tun Imperial Stout pours out black with a thick brown colored head. The aroma is a mixture of cocoa, black coffee, roasted malts and a hint of molasses. Its flavor is a decadent balance of black coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, roasted malts, a touch of molasses and a soft fruit character. A moderately full bodied beer with matching carbonation, this imperial stout has just enough alcohol to keep your cheeks warm, and a dry finish to keep you coming back for more.
The American innovation has done wonders with this style adding coffee, chocolate and oatmeal flavors and aromas to the creamy roasty attributes inherent in a stout. Barrel aging in whiskey barrels or lots of hops are just some of the variations you can explore. Not necessarily higher in alcohol these beers are all about texture, richness, creaminess and full flavor for an even fuller experience.
