Welcome to the Hop Cast, where Brad Chmielewski and Ken Hunnemeder share their love of craft beer with the world. In this weeks episode, Brad and Ken dive into two different Midwest Imperial Stouts. First up is the 11.5 % ABV Kavorka from the Naperville brewery, Solemn Oath. This beer is a winter release from Solemn Oath and is thick, chewy and viscous with a complex malt profile comprised of roasted barley, dark chocolate, molasses and dark fruit with a light, piney hop balance. Brad and Ken follow up the Kavorka with the 10.40 % ABV Blot Out The Sun from 3 Floyds Brewing. Even though Blot Out The Sun is lower in alcohol than the Kavorka, this beer still packs a very big punch. With it being so cold out in Chicago, there is no better way to warm up then with a big-ass local stout.
Cheers and thanks for watching the Hop Cast!
