Poured on tap at Barley Brother's into a shorty pilsner style glass. From notes.
A real nice dark walnut brown to black body, with very deep red ruby hues along the edges. A simple light tan collar is presented. Quite and impressive body color.
Great nose on this. Soft leafy like tobacco and mild light aromas of dark bitter chocolate. Powdery and also silky as well, with great earth like tones to match. Very nice aromas on this beer.
Palate follows the bouquet very nicely to match. Silky mouthfeel and palate translate the flavors wonderfully. Solid dark chocolate and soft coffee flavors wash everywhere. Aftertaste brings piping coffee warmth to match. Great simple roast character to boot, and nicely balanced.
While not explosive and huge or impressive, it's very well balanced and integrates two flavors real nicely. Excellent Imperial Stout.
