4.88/5 rDev +13.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Dark black body. A vigorous pour resulted in a one finger head that is tan. Ecellent look.
Smell: Alcohol and big roasted smells. Also a good load of malt freshness like a dunkel.
Taste: Wow. Milky and creamy, then bitter coffee roast flavors, a good bit of alcohol too. The sweetness balances excellently with bitterness. There is a lot to taste here. I've never had a more balanced stout. This is a superior beer.
Mouthfeel: Creamy and velvety like no other.
Drinkabilty: Imperial Stouts are not as drinkable as your typical session beer, but within this style this is the most drinkable. Relatively low ABV and very high complexity beg me to come back.
Serving type: bottle
