3.28/5 rDev -18.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
A: Very dark brown with an initial 2-finger, creamy brownish head that leaves little lace. Looks quite thick
S: Smells like a stout should- lots of dark malt, toffee and caramel notes with an appropriate sweetness.
T: Something very metallic on the front end with lots of caramel towards the end. Clean finish but the metallic taste lingers on the tongue. Syrup stickiness is also there.
M: Possibly a bit light for an imperial, but heavy enough for a good taste. Moderate to heavy carbonation with a slightly frothlike finish.
D: The flavors are not consistent enough to give this a full-bodied flavor. Nevertheless, it's not bad. Pairing with a vanilla dessert would probably go over well.
Serving type: bottle
