Black gold, California tea. Poured this into a 20 oz nonic. The body is a midnight, impenetrable, take no prisoners black with a creamy brown head.
Coco coffee nose gives way to roasted barley with maybe, just maybe a hint of licorice.
Everything the nose picks up is right there on the palate. There is a slight booziness to it and that's fine with me.
The mouthfeel is soft and smooth--medium bodied.
Overall a great Imperial Stout.
