Sonnen-Bräu Imperial Stout

Sonnen-Bräu Imperial Stout is a rich malty high gravity stout with some dried fruit and licorice before the lingering semi-dry finish. It lacks a bit of mouthfeel for the alcohol level and it's not quite as complex as you'd expect but it's quite dangerous for 10%.

Sonnen-Bräu Mürsbacher Rauch

Sonnen-Bräu Mürsbacher Rauch is a lightly smoky treat with a moreish smooth lingering finish.

Sonnen-Bräu Fastenbier

Sonnen-Bräu Fastenbier is a rich malty Bock with an herbal hop aroma and lingering dry finish.
