RateBeer Score    95 Overall  

Our Imperial Stout is brewed to an Original gravity of 20 P using 10 different types of malt which combined weigh 1,400+ lbs. That works out to 3.4 lbs per gallon of finished beer or almost 4/10ths of a pound in every glass. The dark malts give a roasty flavor and dark color, caramel malts add sweetness and a full body. Three different hop varieties also add their own complexity (and about 78 IBUs). The bittering hops are Northern Brewers which also add a bit of a current-like flavor when used this heavily. The early aromatic hops are Fuggles, the same that we use in the Ad Astra and the Oatmeal Stout. The later aromatic hops are Cascades, the same that we use to finish Copperhead. The Cascades add a bit of an American Flavor to this classic British style.
The Ironman is named for one of our favorite regular customers, Walt Hull, who is a local blacksmith.

Brewed in the authentic historical style of an Imperial Russian Stout, this beer is massive. Intensely aromatic (notes of anise, black currants, coffee, roastiness and alcohol) and heavy on the palate, this brew goes where few can - and fewer dare try.
