Best before 2015.
Bomber served chilled into a goblet.
Imperial Biscotti Break is nearly black and very nearly opaque even on the pour. The head is crema colored and about the same thickness as it is on an espresso.
Aroma is malty and rich, roasty but sweet.
Flavor is sweet up front with dark chocolate and caramel. It's a little more roasty in the middle with dark malts and espresso. It finishes with a little more dry with the alcohol coming through slightly.
Mouthfeel is full bodied and perfectly carbonated with great balance and drinkability for such a strong beer.
Overall an excellent strong stout.

Poured a 22oz into a goblet.
A: pours a real nice pitch black velvet with a sharp thin carbonation dissipating quickly. Pretty color on the head but quickly goes to a flat appearance. Not an issue. How I like my stouts.
S: Real nice coffee like fair trade. Bitter chocolate. Real clean. No off putting bitterness.
T: Amazing. Reminds me a lot of brunch weasel. The coffee is so clean and integrates well with the subtle chocolate. A lot of stouts I want bourbon barrel aged to hide some things or enhance. Not this guy.
M: Damn near perfect from start to finish. Long finish leaving u with a refined chocolate lingering non-syrupy feel. No alcohol burn.
Overall: Pretty shocked. Not expecting much thinking this was gonna be another marked up international offering that would rival a stone ris. Not the case here. Going back for more prob not to age though. One of those rare stouts I can't see barrel aging benefiting.
