Commercial Description

Rich, velvety and deliciously complex, Old Heathen (8.0% ABV) is a truly distinctive stout. We use seven types of malt and two varieties of hops to bring forth this big brew.

    [Best served in a Snifter]

    Poured very dark brown with a small creamy tan head that was mostly diminishing with nice lacing. The aroma was of burnt malts with hints of dark chocolate, coffee and molasses and a nice sweet yeast and resin hop scent. It tasted sweet of chocolate and molasses in the beginning and finished bitter-sweet with a nice hint of coffee and hops. Mouthfeel was full in body and creamy yet oily in texture. Overall a great Impreial Stout.
