Had this on tap during my visit to CCB. Beer was poured into a CCB snifter.
A: pitch black body with a creamy one finger chocolate milk colored head and beautiful viscous lacing as the beer goes down.
S: strong aromas of coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malts that cordially invite you to sip on this beer. Amazing.
T: follows the nose very closely with a thick presence of coffee, dark chocolate milkshake, brownies and lots of roasted malts. Slight sweet aftertaste that ends up begging your palate to go back for some more. Complex taste, yet very well executed; this is an amazing Imperial Stout.
M: I've never had something like this before. Smooth, creamy, soft, thick, and sticky mouthfeel. Let me mention the word smooth again because that's the keyword to describe this. Full body with low carbonation, the high alcohol level is not really felt at all.
O: Best qualities are the taste and the mouthfeel; this beer is an example of how to set the bar high...really high for Imperial Stouts. It was a pleasure enjoying this beer from start to finish, it's the perfect "dessert" beer if you ask me. God bless CCB.
