This beer is “Imperial” in every sense of the word! High in alcohol, with a big roast flavor, and hints of bittersweet stone fruits, toffee and coffee, it is a complex explosion of flavors. This beer needs time to age, so make it now and enjoy all next winter and beyond!
This beer is over 10%, so it's important that the wort is aerated well, and enough yeast is used for proper fermentation. Three packages of yeast should be used, or make a starter with one pack of yeast in advance. A secondary (two stage fermentation) is recommended for this beer, but it can be aged in the bottle if necessary.
All orders containing Liquid Yeast will be shipped with a complimentary ice pack to ensure safe shipping!
