This imperial stout is one of our most complex recipe kits. Not only because of the ingredients invovled (2 types of extract, 5 specialty malts, and 3 different hops!), but because of the mouthfeel, flavors, and aromas it provides. This is also one of those beers that continues to improve the longer it's allowed to age. Our Old Bearded Stout is bold, boasting an incredible roasty, bready flavors, and aromas of chocolate and coffee. Coming in at right around 8.5%, this is a great beer to "just have one" of, but we won't blame you if you go for a second!
