Given to me as a gift by a BA on 4/16/13.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Smith's Pint glass, served at room temp.
appearance: black as crude oil with a 3 finger mocha brown head, The Lacing is magnificent.
aroma: rich roasted malt, chocolate, some black licorice.
mouthfeel: sinous, silky, velvety, seductive.
taste: thicky, syrupy with chocolate and coffee. Charred bitterness and alcohol on the fade.
notes: Another Founder's masterpiece! Again, a Founder's beer scores high on all criteria. Beautiful to look at, wonderful aroma, amazing mouthfeel and outstanding taste. Little wonder that they are one of my favorite breweries. Like all beers I love this balances rich maltiness with a strong bitterness. In this case the bitterness comes from the charred/ roasted malt rather than the hops. The chocolate and coffee are thick and rich. Probably the best Imp. Stout I've ever had.
Serving type: bottle
