A-Opaque black w/a hint of brown. A rich creamy brown head displays good retention, and a cloudy froth swirl remains through the consumption. A spotty lacing clings to the glass.
S-Rich and complex cafe mocha dominates. The roasty aroma also elicits notes of fertile earth, and a thin veil of dark dried fruits. More fruit emerges as the temperature rises. There is a nearly imperceptible amount of hops and a hint of smoke.
T&M-Wow. Creamy espresso w/dark chocolate and a hint of sweetness. Midway there is a delightful blend of a multitude of sensations: creamy coffee, tobacco, smoke, leather, dried currants. The body is interesting...full but velvety and creamy in a way that renders it deceptively light. The finish features a touch of hops, but not enough to cleanse the palate completely, which leaves a coating of sweet fresh coffee. Little noticeable alcohol.
D-This is an awesome beverage, and my last bottle I brought back from this brewery on my trip to Montreal. At least I saved the best for last. This Imp. Stout produces a feeling of well-being that extends beyond the palate.
