SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

If you’re looking for the perfect drink to pair with a rich dessert or for an after-dinner delight then try the Imperial Stout by Boulevard Brewing Company. It may not be what you think to drink during the warm spring months, but because it only comes out once a year, it’s a delicacy.

Imperial Stout is a dark beer that is 11 percent alcohol. It’s sweet and heavy, but not too over-powering. It contains several kinds of malted barley, wheat, rye, oats, and spelt, but it is counterbalanced by coffee flavors and chocolate and plum notes.

“I personally enjoy the fact that it is a well-balanced imperial stout,” said Joe Hotek of John’s Grocery, 401 E. Market St. “Most tend to have way too much oat, so it’s really subdued. It’s fun, rare, and only comes out once a year.”
