Another stout for the season. I am always looking for the BEST stout. I did enjoy this one. Nothing in terms of coffee or bourbon which seems to be the latest in all stouts today.
But this has a very bitter chocolate taste. Something like a bakers chocolate
I am glad I tried this... but

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark cola black with tan frothy head of 3 cm that fades to a sturdy edge layer and streaks of wispy islands on the surface.
Aroma is fairly mild with some roasted malt and a bit of dark chocolate maybe a little earthy malt but the nose is mild.
First sip reveals a average body with fine yet robust carbonation that boosts the mouthfeel of the beer.
Flavor is roasted malt, brown sugar, dark choclate and molasses, I also get some booze and a bit of an earthy hop presence. Also a little anice or black licorice makes its presence known as I ip the beer. Slightly warm as it goes down the gullet.
The beer is an okay imperial stout, but the aroma is certainly more mild than I anticipated when I opened the bottle.
Not a bad or flawed beer, it drinks pretty easy, but I admit to being a little disappointed as I finish it off.
