Poured 2013 edition of Imperial Stout into snifter.
A - Pitch black with dark mocha head about 1/2 finger head with foam sticking to the glass until the end.
S - Dark roasted malts, chocolate and coffee, but more roasty- unlike Breakfast Stout.
T - Roasted and toasted malts with a touch of hops. A bitter beer. True RIS. This year, overly boozy. You can taste the alcohol. This becomes less with age and becomes a very good RIS.
M - Smooth and silky....warming up to be rich and creamy. Close to perfection.
O - It is not BS or KBS. It doesn't have the complexity as either one which is expected. I believe and hope this gets better with age. I would give much higher rating, but for the first time, disappointed by the alcohol...way too much. Still good, but not what I was expecting. Not up to Founder's usual quality.
