I’m sitting here thinking about how to describe this stout and it hits me… It’s like dumping two tablespoons of DME into a triple espresso, then dusting it off with some very dark chocolate shavings.
Very finely packed, dense, two-finger head with tiny bubbles everywhere, even with an aggressive pour. As the dark brown head recedes down to the jet black body it leaves large clings of lace on the sides of the glass. The smell is roasted malts, chocolate syrup, and dark roasted coffee beans. The taste is very similar to the smell, and as I described it at the top of the review, it’s like dropping Whoppers into espresso. The taste also has a smooth biscuit malt characteristic that makes this Imperial Stout down right righteous. Nice thick, full body that is chewy and perfect. The drinkability is also very high because throughout the different great tastes that are present here, alcohol isn’t one of them.
This has quickly become a staple of my beer cellar and will continue to impress me every time I enjoy it.
