Imperial Stout

Nanaimo

We teamed up with our friends at Bellwoods and Evil Twin Brewing to brew our latest dessert-inspired imperial stout. Nanaimo draws its inspiration from the no bake, classic Canadian confection: a triple layer bar with a graham cracker-coconut crumble base, a vanilla custard cream icing center, and a chocolate ganache top. We captured these elements by adding 750 pounds of Graham Cracker to the mash along with lactose, and then conditioned the beer on coconut, vanilla, and chocolate.

 

Pouring an opaque, jet black with a light brown head, Nanaimo conjures up aromas of vanilla bean scones, warm chocolate pudding, and lightly toasted mixed nuts. Like it’s namesake dessert, Nanaimo presents a richly layered palate with deep lingering flavors of graham cracker crust, brown sugar cookie dough, shredded sweet coconut, crème brûlée, and melted milk chocolate. Decadent with a rounded, latte-like medium body, Nanaimo has a lingering sweetness that calls you back after each sip.
