Direct from West Sixth Brewing:
West Sixth Brewing announced today the release of the newest beer in their specialty line of seasonal cans – the Snake Eyes Imperial Stout.
“We’re very excited to release this next beer in our seasonal line ” said West Sixth co-founder Ben Self. “We’ve made Snake Eyes since our first year in 2012 – releasing it each winter. It’s always a crowd favorite”.
Snake Eyes Imperial Stout is brewed with many roasted malts, with flavor hints of chocolate, coffee and a touch of caramel sweetness, making up an exceptional flavor profile. A high ABV stout, it’s sure to take the chill out of the air.
“Everyone at West Sixth loves malty stouts – and we make quite a few different varieties” said brewer and co-founder Robin Sither. “Snake Eyes always rises to the top every year”.
“Snake Eyes Imperial Stout takes its name from the strength to which it’s brewed – ending up at 11% alcohol by volume”, said co-founder Brady Barlow. “It’s also the beer we have the most fun aging in bourbon barrels to make beers like Snakes in a Barrel and Snake Cake”.
As with all West Sixth cans, the can design was created by Brian Turner of Lexington-based Cricket Press.
“Similar to the Heller Heaven Double IPA release earlier this year, we’ll be releasing this beer for a short run in limited quantities” said co-founder Joe Kuosman. “Once it’s gone, it’s done for the year.”
Snake Eyes Imperial Stout will be available in 4-packs of cans and on draft throughout Kentucky and Cincinnati, OH beginning on January 4th, 2016.
