Served from a 12 oz brown bottle.
Appearance: Deep but not quite opaque black with a nice tan head.
Smell: Dark bread with some dryed fruit smells (raisins, prunes). Also some definite chocolate/brownie smell. A little milky with maybe some coffee and wood.
Taste: Roasty with some noticeable hops. Some coffee and unsweetened chocolate flavors as well as some bitter dark malts. A little milky sweetness as well. Maybe a bit of faint smoke. A little warming alcohol in the stomach.
Not as many charred flavors as other imperial stouts.
Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy, fullbodied but not heavy. Low carbonation, which is on par for the style.
Impressions: Lovely and flavorful. Great after-dinner drink.
Serving type: bottle
