A Note on This Beer
Arcadia Ales is on point to shape the evolution of hop-forward dark beers.
The new rendition of their Imperial Stout is an American Stout with the addition of three assertive hops: Nugget, Simcoe, and Chinook.
Though Arcadia is widely praised for their deft use of malts, recently the brewery has delved deeper into the flavor potentials of West Coast hops, even winning Silver for their IPA at this year’s GABF.
Imperial Stout is packed with English Pale, Chilean Crystal and Chocolate malts, for a midnight black curtain of bitter cocoa powder. Citrus and pine aroma from Nugget, Simcoe, and Chinook hops transition into resinous flavor notes. Each of the 90 IBUs in Imperial Stout announce themselves in a charred rind finish.
Arcadia Ales has been the taste-makers of craft beer in Michigan since they opened in 1996. Through an exclusive partnership, we’re able to bring this innovative take on the Imperial Stout to the West Coast in this exclusive Reserve release.
