Samuel Smith’s “Imperial Stout”

      I may have rung this bell before, but I feel the need to ring it again from time to time. One of the best things about beer is its versatility! We all know to drink a good brew by itself is enjoyable, and to pair a brew with food is even better. However, I am a huge fan of using beer in food! Many different tasty beers can be used in a myriad of ways in food. This weeks brew can be used in beer floats, reduced to a syrup, used in cakes, cookies and brownies! Obviously this brew can be swapped for your favorite in this style but this happens to be one of my favorites to use in recipes! On to the functional brew…
       Samuel Smith’sImperial Stout” pours a solid motor oil black color with a two finger thick fluffy brown head. The aromas coming off this black beauty are sweet chocolate, espresso, malt, molasses, grain and lemon citrus. The taste brings on flavors of dark fruits like raisins, plumb, black cherries, along with dark brown sugar, coffee and spice. The mouthfeel is medium and slick with soft carbonation. The finish is long, smooth and slightly fruity with a bitter coffee bite. This is a most excellent example of the Imperial Stout style and will forever be a staple in the beer world! Not to mention it is absolutely one of my favorite brews to incorporate into and pair with desserts! Here’s to Good Beers!
