If there's one beer from the Red Hill range that craft beer lovers hang out for more than any other, it has to be the Imperial Stout. An excellent example of the style, the good news in 2011 is that they've brewed more of it than ever before. They've also allow some to condition in traditional English casks - then dry-hopped it - and will be pouring it from the hand pump at the brewery. And they've increased the bitterness compared to the 2010 version. This year's batch is described as "jet black", "silky smooth", with a nose of roasted malt and a touch of caramel. To taste, expect "a rich deep mocha and coffee flavour, accentuated with caramel and smoky flavours".
