Huge thanks to Jon over at Kappy's on Rt 1 in Malden for this one. Bottle for now, bottle to age.
Poured gently into a large Tripel Karmeliet glass. Pitch black with a faint, spotty tan head. Great lacing and sticks to the sides of the glass very well. Very viscous looking.
Aroma hits you right away with a deep, dark chocolate candy bar sweetness. Roasted malts, toffee, and oaky vanilla all there as well. Some slight warming alcohol comes through more and more as the beer warms up. The flavor is very similar to the nose but has a strong dark fruity/fig sweetness that mixes in well with the dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel and coffee flavors. Very big, bold imperial stout. Leaves a sticky coating on the palate and finishes with a warming alcohol presence.
Excellent offering from FW. Really enjoyed this beer.
