A: Pitch black colour with a single finger of creamy mocha coloured foam head. Good retention as head slowly dissipates to a thin blanket then to a ring, where it remains. Lacing is OK for me. Noticeably thick as it pours.
S: Caramel, dark roasted coffee or even espresso (and plenty of it), dark chocolate, molasses, and some herbal qualities including anise. Wonderful and enticing smell that is certainly coffee bean forward.
T: Caramel and molasses initially which quickly transitions to that bold roasted dark coffee/espresso flavour with strong hints of bittersweet dark chocolate. Herbal anise flavour follows. Leaves a lingering but not overly annoying bitterness, which compliments the upfront caramel-sweet profile very nicely. Alcohol very well hidden.
M: Full bodied with a medium carbonation. There's an appropriate sticky texture to this that really coats your tongue.
D: An exceptional imperial stout that I would highly recommend. Alcohol will certainly creep up on you. Can't think of a better winter warmer.
