Poured from bottle into a snifter
Appearance – The beer pours a nearly pitch black color with a nice two finger brown colored head of big carbonation bubbles. The head fades relatively quickly, leaving some light lace on the sides of the glass and some foam islands on the surface of the brew.
Smell – The aroma is nice and roasty with lots of roasted malt aromas, a nice big chocolate smell, and a good deal of coffee. Along with these smells are some notes of a vanilla nature as well as a lighter caramel. A little bit of smoke and oak are in the nose as well, overall creating a moderately sweet and roasty smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter chocolate and roasted malt flavor. Flavors of vanilla and a bit of the caramel detected in the nose were present upfront, complimenting the chocolate very nicely. The flavors present upfront, remain throughout the taste, creating a base for the brew. As the taste moves on however, a nice coffee and lighter toast flavor comes to the tongue. A woody and oaky flavor comes to the tongue at the end, and when combined with a bit of smoke, a very nice oaky and roasty chocolate latte like flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is very thick and creamy with a carbonation level that is average. The thick and creamy body is fantastic for all the roasted and sweeter flavors of the brew letting all those big flavors to sit and linger on the tongue.
Overall – This was a very tasty Imperial. The mingling of big flavors in the chocolate, coffee and roast were quite fantastic, and even at 10 % abv there was almost no detectible boozy flavor. Thankfully the thicker body keeps the drinker in check and kept this a very enjoyable slow sipper.
