Imperial Stout: Starring tonight at Office Hours.

Two weeks ago, we concluded an exploration of most Stout stylistic territory.

Tonight, the onslaught of icy cold weather jibes perfectly with an overview of Imperial Stout, always my personal favorite "gravity" category.

As always, sampling and commentary costs $5 and runs from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Public House. Let's see what we can round up for this one.

***Category 13 — Stout

13F Imperial Stout
Overall Impression: An intensely flavored, big, dark ale. Roasty, fruity, and bittersweet, with a noticeable alcohol presence. Dark fruit flavors meld with roasty, burnt, or almost tar-like sensations. Like a black barleywine with every dimension of flavor coming into play.
