Saltaire XS Imperial Stout 8.9%

saltaire xs imperial stout

Saltaire XS Imperial Stout pours dark brown in the glass, and has a rich roasted aroma with dark chocolate and a hint of forest fruits.

The hops definitely take a backseat with this one; it’s all about the malts.

To taste it reminds of an Espresso made with freshly ground beans, rich and fruity – and there’s a subtle spiciness from Brambling Cross hops added late in the boil.

Food Pairing

The roasted malts in this beer pair really nicely with chocolate.

Try it with a nice thick slice of chocolate cake, and to add some contrast a good dollop of whipped cream.
