DESCRIPTION:
The Imp is a ruthless, barrel-aged trickster. Black down to its very heart, this beer has dark intentions, but sweet and warming flavors. Chocolate and raisiny malt is complimented by apple brandy fruit and a dry finish belying its initial richness. Its aroma is almost all of that delicious Copper & Kings nectar that resided in the barrel before it, but its flavor is round, complex and warming. Its a smooth-talker and sure to go straight to your head, the rascal.
