This is a beer brewed as a collaboration with our Swedish friends Electric Nurse. They had the malt bill for a killer barley wine, and we threw masses of our favorite hops at it, Pacific Gem and Amarillo. The resulting brew was a fantastic 10.2% barley wine that we just had to call Bearded Nurse.
Created with boldness in mind Sweet Alma has a powerful bitterness, intriguing aromas and a quenching dryness. Née de la fusion de houblons américains, Sweet Alma envoûte par ses arômes intriguants et sa puissante amertume.
Halos often signify enlightenment, harmony, and majesty, sentiments that all come to mind when contemplating this rich and complex beer. Crested atop this imperial stout is a radiant crown of juicy raspberries offering pronounced fruitiness and acidity to balance the beer’s formidable body. Heavy, indeed, is the head that wears the halo.
