sohaWe could possibly have one of our hottest days of the year today, but that doesn’t stop you from enjoying some awesome stouts. Let’s be honest, nothing satisfies like a big, black beer.

Tonight, beginning at 7PM, South Hampton Bar and Grill will be serving up two of the biggest, blackest beers around. You’ll get a chance to enjoy 4 Hands Brewing Company Bona Fide Imperial Stout and also Bell’s Brewery Black Note Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout.

If you haven’t had these beers, here’s the descriptions for you:

Bona Fide Imperial Stout is a collaborative effort with Goshen Coffee, a local fair trade coffee roaster. This beer is big, bold, and in your face. Bona Fide pours black as night with a smooth mouth feel. Aromas of espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malt, with nuances of vanilla. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years. 9% ABV / 65 IBU’s

Black Note Stout blends the complex aromatics of Expedition Stout with the velvety smooth texture of Double Cream Stout and ages the combination in freshly retired oak bourbon barrels for months. The resulting harmony of flavors captures the finest features of all three components: malty notes of dark chocolate, espresso & dried fruits, all buoyed by the warmth and fragrance of the bourbon barrel. Aimed squarely at the stout and bourbon aficionados, Black Note makes a grand statement about the art of the dark. 11.5% ABV
