Ecliptic Brewing Oort Imperial Stout

What the brewers say

Roasted barley and chocolate malts were combined with three types of caramel malts for a rich, full mouth-feel. Chinook, Cascade, and Sterling hops lend a balanced bitterness and subtle hops flavor.

What our panel thought

Intense roast and toast notes in both aroma and flavor are complemented by piney hops note to create a properly bitter and boldly roasted stout. It’s a bit unsophisticated and lacks some of the subtle complexity, es-pecially in the malt character. If you love roasted malt notes, this is the stout for you.

What our editors thought

A rather intensely hoppy nose speaks to its American-ness, with subtle C-hop citrus notes and a bit of pine. Bitterness seizes the sip from the outset, with a dual-pronged roast and hops aggressive bitterness.
