Deepest black color with a thin light caramel head with short retention.
Aroma with notes of licorice, dark fruits, caramels, cocoa powder and coffee.
Elegant flavor with notes of licorice, lots of red and black fruits, milder Bourbon, guaraná, vanilla, coconut, oak, raisins, cocoa powder and dark chocolate, mild anise and light charcoal.
Quite dry aftertaste with a long lasting roasted note.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 11.9% is felt, but in harmony with the overall beer.
Well balanced and complex Imperial Stout, though the bourbon and hops were more on the undertone. Very chocolaty, nutty and coconutty. Great beer.
