Dark brown/black, nearly opaque, short tan head/cap.
Roasted coffee and dark malts, sublte chocolate aromas
coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts.
A bit thin bodied as compared to other comparable stouts.
I enjoyed this brew at a Rare Stout night tasting, thanks to CampusCrew and the other generous BAs. This is a fine made imperial stout for sure, but not one of the standouts as we expected during our 20+ bottle tasting. This seems a bit overly hyped, I have wanted to try it for a long while, and it did not live up to the hype - taste wise - but the label rocks! A fine stout indeed, just not a standout as expected. I think a label can create a lot of attention indeed.
