This 12.2% Imperial stout with chocolate, cashews, almonds, and hazelnuts started with a semi-sweet imperial stout base, then we added massive amounts of toasted almonds, cashews, and hazelnuts. The nuts really come through in this beer, with big toasted aromas and more of a praline nut sweetness. To get the chocolate we went with what became our new go-to method for getting a chocolate character into this beer, we used a combination of toasted raw cacao nibs and natural liquified chocolate called Cholaca. The result bridges the gap between the super dark and bitter qualities of chocolate with a sweet, candied chocolate flavor.
