SweetWater Bottles “The Gimp” [PICS]

SweetWater Brewing Company (Atlanta, GA) has spent the later part of this week bottling their latest Dank Tank creation – The Gimp.  Gimp is an old ale that pushes the 11% ABV mark. This boozy offering is anything but submissive though. Expect flavors of toffee, and caramel, with a slightly hot finish.  The use of Nelson Sauvin hops lends The Gimp a little fruity note in the middle of each sip.  This beer is meant for the cellar. When you’re feeling like it. – Bring Out The Gimp!

This Old Ale promises to tease the senses, giving off sweet scents of caramel and toffee mixed with warming sensations of alcohol and malt, all well-balanced with a low-voltage dose of hops. It’s advised that this brew be stashed in cellars for a few months before consumption, but once broken out, its submissive deliciousness will be sure to please. Warning: this brew gags up 10.3% ABV so it’s suggested to ease in to The Gimp with caution. 

Below are few pics from bottling day, and a tasting session with Nick Nock, SweetWater’s head brewmaster.
