Beer Review 79 // Agamemnon by Omnipollo

Sometimes the world is glorious and one of your favourite breweries start to contract brew out of the country you live in. This is what has happen with Omnipollo brewing, who now brew out of Toronto and sell their beers in the LCBO. So whilst I was buying red wine last week (yes I drink wine), I spotted a can of Agamemnon and knew I had to have it!

Details

Name: Agamemnon

Style: Imperial Stout

Brewery: Omnipollo

Country: Contract brewed in Canada

ABV: 12.5%

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

Own Opinion

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.
