Big Vanilla Idjit
This is a bigger, bolder vanilla version of our classic imperial stout Idjit. So, what does that make this beer then? An imperialer (it’s a word) vanilla stout? A more imperial vanilla stout? Let’s just say it’s big. Big vanilla idjit!
For a long time, almost since our very beginning, we’ve brewed our iconic imperial stout Idjit. We’ve not only brewed the regular version but barrel aged versions, putting it in everything from whisky to bourbon barrels. We’ve done a Christmas version and even a half version in which we cut the ABV down a bit. What we’ve never done (commercially) is a maxed out version. Well, until now that is. We’ve wanted to do this beer for a long time, an Idjit with extra everything. A straight forward big, bigger, biggest imperial stout. No fuss, just thick malty loveliness. Then, we decided to fuss with it a bit, because who can resist a little bit of vanilla?
