American Double / Imperial Stout |  8.25% ABV

Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet-black in color, this monster smells of coffee and chocolate. The taste is much of the same, with hints of creamy toffee and roasted malt. Smooth and delicious, this medium bodied ale is all about the malts, but has enough hop bitterness to be balanced.

I picked up a 4-can at a nearby Specs, with some skepticism. I really love the Imperial Stouts, and Old Rasputin and Ten-FIDY really are the benchmarks on my scale...so this little puppy had quite a challenge ahead. Onto review:

A - Dark, really dark, opaque dark. Couldn't get any light through...a really good sign for a stout. Got about 3-fingers width of head with an aggressive pour that subsided quite nicely leaving an impressive lacing...more good signs. So far so good!

S - Coffee and roasted malts..overwhelmingly so. Hints of dark chocolate. Simple and impressive.

T - This was a winner. Taste follows smell - coffee, roasted malts and chocolate. Goes down real easy, leaving a lasting flavor of coffee and toffee. Very drinkable , although I was averaging about one sip a minute.

M - each sip coats the entire palate. Not a chewy kind of beer, but has a nice body and consistent feel to it.

Overall - definitely a very, very good beer. I'm trying to cellar the remaining ones, to see how they age; but I may very well pop one just to get a whiff of it :)

Not exactly a Rasputin/Ten-Fidy imperial style, but more a cappucino stout, and an extremely well-crafted one.
