Great Lakes Brewery Pompous Ass English Ale

This beer is very dark brown in colour with a light caramel coloured head. It has a very similar flavour profile to an IPA, with distinct notes of hops and the citrus that comes with it. 445 more words

Trappist Imperial Stout (Spencer Brewery)

Style: Imperial Stout

8.7% ABV

From: Spencer, MA

Brewery’s Note: “A massive, roasted, malt-forward American Trappist take on the Anglo-Russo Imperial Stout tradition.  Luxuriantly frothy foam, waves of coffee, chocolate and caramel sensations, a generous blend of dark fruit flavors.  558 more words
