With Halloween right around the corner, pumpkin beers are everywhere right now. I appreciate the style but, for some reason, I just haven’t been in a very pumpkiny mood this year. What I’ve really been waiting for is the return of all those wonderful Winter Stouts.
Lucky for me, they’ve starting to arrive over the past month or so and, this Saturday, one of my local favorites is returning from Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor): Grandfather Raven Imperial Stout.
Here is some more information about this release from Black Raven Brewing Company:
In the creator role, and in the Raven’s role as the totem and ancestor, the Raven is often addressed as Grandfather Raven. With this stately sense of pomp and tradition we bring you our Imperial Stout. This robust black ale is full with rich dark caramel, unsweetened chocolate, and hints of coffee aromas and flavors. Stately indeed, but at 9.5% ABV, perhaps it is just a vain attempt to encourage the trickster spirit to act respectably.
ABV: 9.5%On draft and 22oz bottles available to go $8.99 + tax
Grandfather Raven arrives this Saturday the 22nd, when Black Raven Brewing Company opens their doors at noon. So come have a pint or two, and pick up some bottles to go. They’ll help keep you warm on those cold Winter night ahead.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
