Notes/Commercial Description:
Kerplunk! Imperial Chocolate Stout is named for the delicious sound made as large amounts of Wilbur chocolate and west coast hops are added directly into the simmering brew kettle. This hefty black Imperial-style stout boasts a rich caramel sweetness lavished by a robust, deep-roasted heartiness you can sink your two front teeth into. The bold flavors found in Kerplunk! are produced using a generous blend of roasted barley, crystal malts and locally produced chocolate. The resulting brew exhibits a deliciously complex and unique profile of subtle mocha coffee and intense chocolate, balanced nicely by the underlying roasted hop bitterness.

Poured into my Heineken Mug at 50.

Appearance: A two finger head that has a persistent head that left lacing on the glass. The color of the head is medium tan that is foamy and creamy The color of the beer is dark brown, like used motor oil. The clarity of the beer is opaque.

Nose: A dark malt with chocolate, caramel, biscuit, and bread. Other aromas are fruity esters, coffee, alcohol, phenols, molasses, and an earthy tone.

Taste: A dense rich roasted malt with chocolate, caramel, and biscuit. Other flavors is bread, fruity esters, coffee, alcohol, phenols, and molasses.

The mouth feel of the beer is coating, carbonated, and warm.

Overall: The body of the beer is medium and the finish is full. This is a good chocolate stout, but there is not a thick body to the beer. The body of the beer needs more oomph. Great flavors and very flavorful.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured into a pint with a thin cap of tan head. Smells of chocolate, dark crystal malts, hints and of coffee and slight smokiness.

Taste is rich with bitter chocolate, sweet milk chocolate, smokey black malt, slight hop bitterness, and a twinge of espresso.

Mouthfeel is a little thin for my liking, but the carbonation is nice and the beer isn't oily or syrupy.

Surprisingly it doesn't sit heavy in the stomach.

Worth trying for sure, and much better balanced than ST choklat

Serving type: on-tap
