Celebrate craftsmanship and raise a glass to broader flavor horizons.

  • Comments: In honor of my wife being enrolled, registers and oriented at KU, I present Iron Man Imperial Stout by Free State Brewing Company. Free State is located on Mass street in downtown Lawrence Kansas, and a favorite watering hole of many KU grads and family. Iron man pours quickly with a shallow head comprised of average size bubbles ( 0.5mm - 0.7mm ). The head dissipates fairly quickly but there is wet lacing on the glass to the last sip. The nose of the beer is fresh and hoppy with a hint of sweet maltiness. The mouthfeel is lighter and less viscous than most other porters, which I have found to be common to Imperials. The taste is bitter sweet with a front loaded hop blast followed by a smooth and warming sweetness. Cheers to Free State on a a quality beer, and to my good lady wife on taking her life in exactly the direction she wants it to go!
