The story of the really mean butcher that became a hipster thing. Imperial stout matured on wood, gourmetized with cinnamon, vanilla and cacao. Adjunct is the new black, baby. (Source: Loosely translated from the beer's label.)
- Beer: Mad Butcher
- Style: Imperial Stout (30A. Spice, Herb, or Vegetable Beer - 20C. Imperial Stout with cinnamon, vanilla and cocoa)
- ABV: 13.9%
- IBU: 70
- Look: dark color, semi-turbid, with medium formation of a creamy light brown head that leaves marks on the glass;
- Aroma: at first, light cocoa notes, along with lighter vanilla notes. Alcohol notes are noticeable, but in a way that suits the beer well. on the glass, caramel notes become more well defined. Low burned sugar notes presence.
- Taste: the taste follows the aroma quite closely, bringing a pleasant mix of cinnamon, vanilla and wood-like notes. At the end of the sip, roasty notes are noticeable, lingering at the aftertaste.
- Mouthfeel: Full body, medium-high carbonation and a sweet and long finish;
- Overall: Really good Imperial Stout. The spices were inserted in a really elegant way. Doesn`t taste like a 13.9% ABV beer.
