Hand-pumped and served in a brandy snifter. Dark brown, almost black with a very slight ruby tinge and a small, dark tan, creamy, slowly diminishing head. I could smell huge malts and whiffs of alcohol as soon as the beer was placed 2’ from me. Upon closer inspection, I discovered just how marvelously complex it is. Cherry, molasses, chocolate, charcoal, pepper, prune, light cassis, light vanilla, and light citrus. The taste is all about the big malts, I think more roasted than toasted. Lots of warming alcohol. Molasses, cherry, charred wood and spice. The finish is medium-long in duration, dry and warming, with malts still hanging on and some late-hitting fruit. It has smooth texture but comes off a little watery. A pretty good Imp. Stout. I don’t think the taste quite lived up to the aroma, but still nicely done. I just wish they’d put this out in the colder months.
