This is simply an incredible Imperial Stout. In my opinion, when stored correctly, these continue to improve with age and grow in depth.
Appearance: This is motor oil black, when swirled in my tulip glass leaves a very appetizing orange residue that slowly runs flows down the glass; very little head from the bottle, more from a tap.
Smell: This is a mixed bouquet of chocolate, coffee, licorice; just a very rich aroma.
Taste: I must say this is one of the smoothest Imperial's I've tried. There is zero bite, initial favors are chocolates, but the flavor keeps going, after taste turns to coffee/licorice. Very interesting.
Mouthfeel: This is a thick chewy imperial, again feels smooth and viscous.
Overall: This is definitely an extremely well crafted beer. I would highly recommend this to any beer connoisseur.
Serving type: bottle
