A very old beer from 8-Wired now, but one that has evolved over the years (most recently finding its way into a can over a bottle).  Big stouts like this are typically sweet, dessert-like and comforting, but iStout is a more sit-down serious affair.  Dark chocolate, cold brew coffee and sumptuous roasted malt abounds on the nose, while the palate channels powerfully flavourful chocolate and coffee bean energy.  The flavours bounce between burned malt and hop bitterness and rich sweetness as they lead into a profoundly long finish that brings up its own subtle notes of burned driftwood and tobacco.
