750 bomber, bottled 2012
A- Pours an opaque jet black with a little over a finger of creamy mocha head with good retention. When brought up to the light can see tiny carbonation bubbles quickly rising along the side of the glass, definitely a little bit more carbonation then your average stout. Slight lacing.
S- Distinct smell of fresh espresso beans mixed with dark chocolate and some malts and booze hiding in the background.
T- Creamy espresso mixed with notes of dark chocolate nibs and a little bit of booze in the background. Nice sweet chocolate aftertaste.
M- Nice and creamy and smooth, not too syrupy. Medium bodied to a little bit heavy. Can definitely tell the alcohol is there, but goes down incredibly smooth for a beer of this abv. Very little alcohol burn. Not too much carbonation.
O- This was a great imperial stout, definitely one of my favorites. Everything about this beer was great- great espresso smell, nice sweet espresso/chocolate taste without being overly sweet, and an awesome creamy mouthfeel without getting too much of syrupy feel or alcohol burn. Great job by Alesmith. Would love to try the BA versions. At $17/bomber, this beer was a little bit pricey but definitely worth it.
