American Double / Imperial Stout |  12.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

Poured bottle dated 3/17/14 into Lost Abbey Teku

A-Pours a black with a tan 2 finger head. Great lacing.

S-Awesome aromas of roasted coffee, chocolate, and malt.

T-The taste is similar to the aromas but more of the coffee is present. Also notice a hint of fig.

M-Mouthfeel is well balanced a little on the dry on the tongue. Good carbonation.

O-Overall a great stout that lives up to the hype. Got the last one at the store which I'll have to get some more.
500th beer to review, it was well worth it!

I really enjoyed this one . it is a very good Imperial stout but maybe I had higher expectations. I think this would be a little more up to what I expected if I sit on a bottle in my cellar for a year or even two .. glad I grabbed two bottles :), if you see this on the shelves buy it , very tasty , made with first class high ingredients, close to best in class coffee imperial stout . still prefer a fresh Founders Imperial stout or a Terrapin wake n bake but this is up there for sure. again, I think a few months or years in a cellar would improve
