Day 32 Drink: Otter Creek Russian Imperial Stout

Otter Creek Brewing started turning out beer in Middlebury, Vt., back in 1991. The company started contract brewing Wolaver's Organic Ales in 1998, and in 2002 that company ended up acquiring Otter Creek.

Otter Creek Russian Imperial Stout on draught pours black with a tan head that stays put throughout. There is a ton of roasted grain is this brew, with espresso and dark chocolate notes in a silky body. This 10.6 percent alcohol by volume beer finishes very dry for a Russian imperial stout. It just could fool you.
