12 oz bottle served at cellar temp into a pint glass.
Narwhal is basically black in color and starts with a good inch of off white head. It settles somewhat quickly but leaves a little lacing behind.
Aroma is roasty and robust with some hop character.
Flavor is surprisingly strong with big bitterness from both hops and malts. There's a little sweetness but it's really dominated by dark roasted malts and big hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel is full bodied and a little bit overly carbonated.
Overall a good imperial stout but it doesn't have the silky mouthfeel of my other favorites like Yeti and TenFidy.
