Apperance: This Imperial Stout had normal head retention. The lacing I will discuss after I have finished the glass. The color is totally dark brown, to simplify would be to say that it is black. I am not even going to hold it to the light because with a beer this dark, it does not matter. The lacing is not something of note. It exists, but barely
Nose: A start of carmel, and coffee. Quite a bit of coffee. That is about it. maybe some dry fig.
Taste: Although there is not very much in the smell department, it makes up for this in the taste. Right away i get fig, carmel, coffee, roasted wheat. It is a bit bitter in the end and it is the bitterness which sticks with you unti your next sip. It does not have a heavy mouthfeel which lends to more distinct characteristics.
Notes: Not heavy in alcohol content or body which makes it an easy stout to drink.
Serving type: bottle
