Epic / Fierce Epicly Fiercely Intolerant Imperial Stout (500ml Bottle)
When we (Epic Brewing) got the opportunity to collaborate with one of the three invitational UK breweries coming to New Zealand for Beervana, the choice was obvious. A name like Fierce Beer just had to be the one and we figured that if you bring together Epic and Fierce you can't hardly help but get something awe-inspiring. Once we looked at how far we pushed this beer, we knew it would be met with some degree of intolerance. Plus we need to warn you now that it does contain some lactose.
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.
