From Richmond BC’s Big River Brewing Company located inside the Zone Bowling Centre comes their “Chimperial Stout” a Chipotle Imperial stout. The beer pours an opaque black with a brown head. The aroma consists of roasted malts, smoke, sweetness and a hint of spice. The flavour is of chipotle, roasted malts, smoke, a hit of chocolate and some earth and bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 10% with an IBU of 40. This beer is very interesting to be sure. I love spice but not always in beer but this one seems to get the best notes from both an Imperial Stout and a chipotle spice.
Commercial Description: A big imperial style stout with Chipotle peppers added. The smoke mingles nicely with roasty stout which gives way to a slow burn that comes from the peppers and the high alcohol. Brilliant when paired with any cheese!
