Style: Imperial Stout
Country: Contract brewed in Canada
Artwork: Karl Grandin @karlgrandin
Commercial Fluff: Invited to brew in the US I wanted to use local ingredients. Agamemnon is an Imperial Stout brewed with maple syrup. Boiled 7 hours - Henok
Label: I'm a big fan of Karl Grandin's work, and the choice of colours really helps it standout on the shelves. It is definitely getting added to the collection.
Pour: It's thick, it's chewy, it's beautiful. Pitch black, tar like pour with a melted hot chocolate foam head. So beautiful.
Aroma: Maple slaps you in the face faster than fast. Also a nice chocolate and vanilla hit before a roasty coffee aroma kicks in. Mouth is watering.
Taste: It delivers! This is not the light hearted as the sweet notes will overwhelm you. Big sweet hit from the maple, vanilla tag team. Then we get as it warms a little more chocolate and coffee force through. But damn a lot of sugar sweetness in this.
Would I buy it again: Hell yes! Loved it. Delivered everything I hoped for and more. Whilst drinking it, it seems like a melted dessert. But a few moments after finishing the alcohol hit came bringing with a warmth and the feeling of happiness. This beer is great, I really loved it.
