Winter in the mountains can be brutal, and sometimes you just need to find a cozy place to hunker down with a robust dark ale to warm your insides. Our Alpine crew knows this feeling well, and it was the inspiration behind our newest experiMENTAL Series release. This bold smoked imperial porter is pitch black in color with a beautiful tan head. The aroma kicks things off with notes of campfire, coffee and chocolate, and then your palate is rewarded with more of the same rich, roasty flavors along with a touch of dried stone fruit. Put on your preferred lounging gear, crack a cold can, and get into your own velvet rut.
