22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
A: Very dark opaque brown pour with a finger of brown head that slowly recedes to a ring of head. Solid, but not overly impressive.
S: Woah - lots of piney hops with some roast in the background. The hops dominate, though.
T: Strong bitterness with citrus and piney hop flavor. As the beer warms, I get more and more roastiness. However, the hops are a bit much for my me. Nearly no sign of 10% ABV, though.
M: Medium thickness mouthfeel with quite a bit of carbonation for an imperial stout, but not distractingly so. I like my stouts a bit thicker with a bit less carbonation.
O: Quite hoppy for an imperial stout. A bit distracting from the rest of the flavors. While this is not one of my favorite RIS, I did enjoy the beer.
