This is a 10.2% ABV imperial stout. It is from the Kalona Brewing Company of Kalona, Iowa. Their motto: "Heavenly Beers Brewed by Mere Mortals."
The beer pours black. There is a
relatively short head of light brown foam. The aroma is dark roasted
malt, raisins, sweet, char, dark chocolate. The taste follows the
aromas, but blends them together more harmoniously than in the
aromas, the char is a bit more amped up in the taste, but it all
holds together well in a dark roasted, delicious whole. The finish is
moderately bitter, and a battle between sweet and dry. There is just
enough body for all the flavor.
