Poured from a 12 FL. OZ. bottle into a pint glass. Bottled on day 279 of 2012 (October 5). ALC. 10.2% By VOL. 2012 Vintage Narwhal Imperial Stout.
Appearance: As always, love the SN artwork. Pours a a viscous oil black liquid. You could eat this with a spoon. Body is jet black, not a hint of light shines through. Relatively thin, albeit robust, dark tan head with carbonation bubbles that cling to the side of the glass. Overall, very impressive and different from any beer I've ever seen.
Smell: Aroma of muted dark roasted malts. Slightly bitter aroma. Toffee, caramel, definite alcohol smell.
Taste: A lot going on in this one. Big alcohol up front. Bitter roasted malt. Figs, coffee, toffee. Alcohol is predominant in the flavor of the beer. Not very smooth drinking.
Mouthfeel: Very thick. Prickly bitter mouthfeel. Heavy aftertaste.
Overall: Too boozy for my liking. I'm sure this will be a hit with Imperial Stout fans.
Serving type: bottle
