Out of the Cellar: Full Sail Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout

One of my all-time favourite beers made an early exit from the cellar last night to round-out the hubby’s last few beers while he is still glutening (probably not a real word but it should be).


Full Sail Imperial Stout


Full Sail Imperial Stout pours deep black brown with lots of mocha coloured head that quickly fades away to a ring around your glass. Deep and rich caramel malts on the nose belay the rich and sweet stout in your glass. First few sips are sweet, malt-forward and slightly oaky. This imperial stout that somehow manages to bring big character to the table without putting you out of commission after a bottle. In other words, it carries it’s 9.6% ABV quite well. This beer is full bodied and warming. The finish is roasted grain, caramel and just a touch of booziness.

I prefer my stouts on the sweet and rich side as opposed to the bitter and dry side so this one is just right. I have had several vintages of this beer it is has always managed to be a hit, which is no small feat. If you have not had the pleasure pick one up you won’t be disappointed.
