FOUNDERS IMPERIAL STOUT

Founders Imperial Stout. I thoroughly enjoyed Founder’s other dark beers such as their porter and breakfast stout, so this one leapt out from the shelf. Apparently it’s brewed with ten varieties of malted barley. It’s 90 IBU and a potent 10.5% ABV.

Jet black with dark brown head, light can’t penetrate it. It could pass for treacle. It sure looks like a-hairs-on-your-chest kind of stout. Rich chocolate and molasses aroma. Full body, soft, luscious mouthfeel with very low carbonation. Rich, dark chocolate and molasses flavour with an underlying toffee and coffee flavour, followed by an assertive bitter finish.

You can almost feel your insides warming as you drink it. The alcohol is well hidden and it doesn’t fall into the sickly sweet trap a lot of high ABV beers do. As it warms up it starts to get a raisin-like aroma with rich dark chocolate and coffee flavours dominating. The mouthfeel becomes more silky with a softer level of bitterness.

This has got be one of the most luscious, flavour packed beers I’ve tasted. The perfect beer to sip on in front of the fire. Fans of beers such as 8 Wired iStout and Feral Boris Russian Imperial Stout should check it out. World class stuff.

 

10/10
