Sure, it's been around since February, but Blackbeerd Imperial Stout from Coast Brewing Co. is still the new kid in Charleston's beer scene, and The Charleston City Paper has a quick rundown on the strong stout aged in Jack Daniels barrels.
As dark as the legend of Blackbeerd himself, behold the Imperial Stout. Sweet malts battle roasted grain on the decks of yer tongue. Like a blast from a cannon, hop are followed by smoked malt. Hold on to yer booty, a dark stouts a brewin'. (9.3% abv) Seasonal-winter. And yes, this IS a lighter bodied stout-easier drinkin' in the not so cold south.
Ingredients: Two-row barley*, Black, Caraffa*, Roasted barley*, Smoked, Oats* and Extra Special* malts, Magnum and Palisades hops, ale yeast and filtered water.
