Eleventy One Imperial Stout – Torchlight Brewing

From Torchlight Brewing in Nelson BC comes their “Eleventy One Imperial Stout”.  This beer was one of 12 original beers launched at Lift Off! an event part of Victoria Beer Week 2016.  The beer pours an opaque black colour with a brown head.  The aroma consists of roasted malts, chocolate and sweetness.  The flavour was much more complex with roasted malts, earth, ash, milk chocolate, dark fruits, mild bitterness and alcohol.  The alcohol content comes in at 10%.  Big bold and full of flavour all things you want in a big Imperial stout.  I just hope more people in BC get to try and enjoy this beer than normally do!

Commercial Description:  This potent stout derives it’s rich flavour from the complex blend of grains used to brew it to the original gravity or eleventy one.
