Russian Imperial Stout
Looming on the horizon of the White Canyon Wilderness, is a protruding jagged rock formation that looks as if it were made to defeat legions of invaders. Battle Axe Butte is a perfect name for this massive stout. Imperial? Those are session ales. This was spawned from a hike to the top of Battle Axe, where we sipped, well, we sipped Scottish Whisky! Laphroig has all the rough, yet elegant, palate challenging nature to represent the Arizona landscape. We created a high gravity wort which included oats and lactose sugar from an Arizona raised cow. If you are weak, or confined to a petite palate, please avoid this monster of a beer!
