A Note on This Beer
What do the world’s tallest skyscrapers have in common with Perennial’s award-winning Dark Beers?
A really, really solid foundation.
In Perennial’s case, their 4.24 BA-rated Prodigal (2019) Imperial Oatmeal Stout sets the foundation for some of the most sought-after Stouts in craft, like the BA Abraxas — the #3 Imperial Stout in the World on BeerAdvocate.
Drinking today’s 11.5% ABV cocoa-laced king is like getting an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the Stout that built Perennial’s decadent Dark Beer empire!
And today, you don’t even have to leave the comfort of your home to go backstage to one of Hop Culture’s 8 Best Craft Breweries in Missouri. With a bottle of Prodigal, you and all your Dark Beer-lovin’ friends get to explore Perennial’s prowess with the Stout that started it all.
Pop the top off this lavish elixir and let its jet black, silken pour cascade into your goblet. Close your eyes and take a deep whiff, inhaling a procession of dark fudge, vanilla, and charred malts.
Take a pull from your glass, letting Prodigal enrobe the palate with sweet cakey chocolate from cacao nibs, robust roasts, and a touch of Madagascar vanilla beans. The oats deliver Perennial’s trademark thick, velvety texture that expertly hides the huge ABV, while the finish is pleasantly dry with a hint of espresso rounding out endless layers of chocolatey luxury.
The flavors of Prodigal are unhampered by adjuncts, allowing a showcase for Perennial’s brewing mastery. Score a bottle for yourself and experience the richness of Perennial Stouts — or if you’re feeling showy, go ahead and take your friends with you while you tour the foundation of Perennial’s Empire.
