22oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a snifter.
pours out an extremely dark black, burnt up motor oil. about one fingers worth of some super dark brown head, creamy, good retention, and leaves some nice lace. this is a seriously dark looking stout.
super roasted, burnt charred malts are what i pick up most in the aroma. a bit of booze and dark fruits as well. dark dark cocoa.
again, big roasted, burnt malts, as well as some toasted/ roasted grain flavor. burnt char flavors are all over this. some dark dark chocolate plays off all the roasted malt with hints at times of dark fruits. finishes with a bitter cocoa roast flavor and a spicey, booze finish.
creamy, silky smooth. big body, carbonation is right where you would want it for a beer like this.
a solid imperial stout. i enjoyed this more than boris for sure. if this seen extended time in a bourbon barrel i think it could really be magical.
