American Double/ Imperial Stout | 8.30% ABV

This is a very dark and heavy bodied beer. Loaded with malt flavor, imparting coffee and chocolate notes. It has a very silky mouthfeel from the abundant oatmeal used in the brewing process. Hands down one of the best Imperial Stouts on the market. It paired very well with the peanut-butter melt-away desert I had left over.

Pairing notes:

Peanut Butter Melt-away is an explosion of flavor. Loaded with very heavy flavors, a strong beer is needed to cut this bad boy. Founders did the job well. The heavy malt body of the beer linked well with the chocolate base of the desert. A very noticeable coffee flavor cut the peanut butter very nicely while the carbonation of the beer cleared the palate. Terrific desert beer.

beer + food = Barleydine
