Darkest Hour Imperial Stout (Cascara and Coffee) – Anchorage Brewing Company

From Anchorage Alaska’s Anchorage Brewing Company comes their “Darkest Hour Imperial Stout “.  This version was aged 15 Months in Whiskey Barrels with Cascara and coffee from Black Cup.  The beer pours a motor oil black with a chocolate brown head.  The aroma consists of chocolate, roasted malts, brown sugar, coffee, cherry, treacle and toffee.  The flavour is of chocolate, treacle, brown sugar, toffee, cherry, whiskey, oak, vanilla, roasted malts, ash, alcohol,  bitterness and just an overall sweetness.  The alcohol comes in at a big 13%.  This beer was really amazing and I wish I had more but at around $17 a can I will stick with the one can I found.
