I wrote: "Great smell and taste. Much easier to drink than Dogfish Head 120 Minute, but has about the same taste. That is, it's like a 120 Minute, but minus the alcohol. Yeah much nicer. Maybe what I smell is vanilla, not alcohol." 1:00 AM

Pour this over pancakes. Vast in character, luscious and complex, Immort Ale was born at our brewpub in 1995 and made its way into bottles in 1997.

For this beer, we use maple syrup from Red Brook Farm -- Sam's family farm in Western Massachusetts, peat-smoked barley, juniper berries and vanilla.

Immort is fermented with a blend of English and Belgian yeasts, then aged in the big oak tanks at the brewery.

The sweet and earthy flavors meld magnificently in the Immort Ale. But be warned, the ABV is 11%, so after one or two you may start feeling immortal (even though we promise you won't be).

ABV: 11.0 | IBU: 50

Original Release Date 07/1997
Food Pairing Recommendations: Spicy meatballs, meatloaf, corn, dried fruit, balsamic vinaigrette
Wine Comparable: Red wine with dried fruit, zinfandel
