12oz. bottle into a founders tulip glass
A: Pours pitch black with maybe a hint of brown, completely opaque. About an inch of medium brown head that very slowly fades away to a ring around the glass. Quite nice.
S: As soon as I start to pour, I can smell the coffee. Bittersweet coffee can be smelled from feet away. Some roastiness, dark chocolate, and hop bitterness can be smelled, as well. A bit bitter for me, but good for the style.
T: A bit of a surprise after the smell. There is significantly less coffee in the taste. Much more roast, fairly significant hop bitterness, with some bitter coffee. The bitterness is a bit much for me, but overall very good.
M: Thick with good carbonation. Very good.
O: The coffee and chocolate flavors in this beer are wonderful. They mix quite well with the intense roast. I just wish the bitterness was dialed down a bit. A bit more sweetness would help, too. Overall, this is a very good imperial stout.
