Notes/Commercial Description:
Drake's Drakonic Imperial Stout - 8.75% ABV, 40 IBUS
A big, malty beast of a beer that exemplifies the way we roll here at Drake's. Two-row malt is blended with Chocolate malt, roasted barley, and dark Crystal malts to make up the grist. Only one hop addition, Columbus, is added for bittering, allowing the abundance of malt in this beer to shine through. Enjoy the dense brownish head, the silky maltiness, and flavors of licorice, coffee and chocolate, rounded out with a slightly dry finish. here's to those who don't fear the mighty!

22oz. split 2 ways. A pretty thick appearing black pour, finger of dark tan head. Retains well enough.

Aroma, Roast malt, earthy chocolate. Some lighter anise.

Taste, Solid roast malt and licorice again. Pretty well balanced though and not too bitter. Plenty of dark chocolate. Small coffee and malted milk balls.

Solid medium body, not quite creamy carbonation. Minimal warming presence.
A solid representation.
