Dies Irae

Imperial Stout

Attaining peak darkness, this syrupy imperial stout with hints of coffee and a pleasing hop aroma, bears the striking name of Dies Irae or “Day of Wrath” in English. Aside from being the name of the most awe inspiring track on Mozart’s Requiem Mass composition “Requiem in D minor, K. 626,” it brings to mind the Final Judgement at the end of time and the corresponding Four Last Things: Death, Judgement, Heaven, and Hell. May we use this healthy reminder of our end as motivation to rightly order our lives towards God, and as a reminder to pray for the repose of the souls of those who have gone before us. As you drink this fine beer, say a prayer for the Souls in Purgatory, that they may be released from their sufferings.
