look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a 750 ml bottle into snifter
Appearance – Pours a pitch black color with a one finger brown head. The head had big carbonation bubbles entrapped within which rapidly popped to give only a medium amount of lacing.
Smell – Dark fruit aromas are the strongest. A big aroma of raisin, cherry and fig are quite nice and strong. These fruit smells are mixed with a semi sweet chocolate aroma and a sweet brown bread aroma. There is a light yeast cake and an alcohol aroma as well. Overall the smell is sweet and boozy.
Taste – The taste begins sweet and bready with strong hints of chocolate. The sweet is of molasses and the breadiness is a light roasted brown bread flavor. While the brew remains sweet throughout it bitter some toward the middle of the taste as some roasted bitter cocoa and malt come to the profile. At this time there is also a somewhat sour flavor brought with the Belgian yeast flavor. In the end the taste leaves a rather roasted bitter, sweet and sour flavor on tongue with a alcohol boozy the burns ever so lightly.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thick and creamier side and the carbonation is on the lower side. The sweeter flavors really coat the mouth and lingered on the tongue. This thick body and lower carbonation really allowed all that alcohol flavor to soak in creating a very warming feel in the mouth.
Overall – It was a nice experience, but not really what I am looking for in an imperial stout. It had a pretty good aroma and anice mouthfeel but the lack of head and lacing was rather disappointing. The tastes were quite good up front in the taste, but as the taste advanced and brought in the more sour flavors, the flavor left on the tongue was not the most pleasant – it really wasn’t bad, but it also was not great either.
