An amazing beer with a great story that probably deserves to be in the top 10 if not, top 20.
A - Typical black. Very thin, dark tan head. Nothing tricky, but you can tell by looking at it that it is an imperial stout.
S - Honestly my favorite thing about this beer is the smell. The thick sugary, roasted malts. The maple syrup is apparent. A hint of alcohol in the wiff.
T - Syrup, thick roasted malts. Not near as much coffee as the original bkfst stout and not near as much alcohol burn as the Kentucky stout. This was a well balanced and well executed taste that is blended to perfection.
M - I do wish there was a touch more carbonation that was similar to Dark Lord, but this is my only minor complaint.
D - More please. I was only able to get 8 oz, but I would love for them to start bottling this.
Serving type: on-tap
