Starting a new beer tab, we are going to sample out another beer from Starr Hill Brewery. This blog will feature All Access Crypitcal Imperial Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog post on their Amber Ale, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read that beer blog post to get to know this brewery. Let us get into the beer.
It has a jet black color with a tan color head on this stout. The smell has a roasted malts with some chocolate notes. The taste of this Imperial Stout is roasted dark chocolate notes. The aftertaste is burn chocolate notes. It is not drinkable beer.
Here is a description from their website (www.starrhill.com):
Cryptical packs a wallop of dark malt flavor. The beer weighs in at 8.8% ABV and has dark, fruity flavors, like raspberry, plum and star anise. Cryptical is dry-hopped with American Hops to balance out its full body with a floral aroma.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing out the beer tab, this brewery, just what I have been saying in the past beer blogs posts, knows how to brew beer. This Imperial Stout is not drinkable beer but it packs a ton of flavor in this 22oz bottle. I enjoyed drinking this beer and I wish I could get more in the Michigan market. I guess I will have to trade more with my friend. I love the hops they use in this brew and there is some nice chocolate notes. I recommend this beer if you can find this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
