Lakefront 25th Anniversary Imperial Stout
Lakefront 25th Anniversary Imperial Stout is an American Double/Imperial Stout and is the first of four beers brewed to celebrate 25 years. Brewed with cocoa nibs, vanilla beans and cherry puree. Yeah, lots of chocolate is coming through on this one. A little vanilla I guess, although maybe the power of suggestion. I am getting some dark fruits, although not necessarily cherry puree, and a hint of coffee as well. At 10% ABV I am getting zero alcohol heat. Often a mixed bag with this brewery, but this is a fairly solid Imperial Stout. It will not dethrone the top tier stouts out there, but it is very drinkable right now without any age. I will strongly consider picking up a six pack if they are still around when I need some everyday dark beers for the fridge.
