Baird Dark Sky Imperial Stout (633ml Bottle)
Imperial Stout is the biggest of the black beers and to drink Baird Dark Sky is to experience a foreboding libation. The aroma is gorgeously complex (dry hopping with American Centenniel & Amarillo hops) and the flavour is a stunning smorgasbord (chocolate, toffee, herbs, coffee, licorice, etc. ). The mouthfeel is soft and enveloping. The finish is piquantly acrid and warming (alcohol approximately 7. 6%).
Imperial stouts are usually extremely dark brown to black in color with flavors that are intensely malty, deeply roasted and sometimes with accents of dark fruit (raisin, fig) or milk sourness. The bitterness is typically medium and often the low sie of that. Imperial stouts are strong and often exceed 8% by volume.
