Winter 11-12 version, served in chalice.
A- Black, opaque in color with a thin layer of caramel colored head that skims the top after the pour. Short lacing on the sides.
S- Rich and sweet malt, dried figs or prunes, Chocolate, slightly burnt roasted malts, earthy, and a touch of coffee. a bit of booze on the nose as well
T- Sweet molasses and chocolate malt up front immediately following by a spicy hops kick. Notes of sweet dark fruits and a bit of coffee. Finishes very dry with a slight hop bitterness. Alcohol is noticable on the palate but not too bad for 10%.
M- pure silk, low carbonation, thick and creamy.
O- Overall a great stout. It has more of a hops kick than many Imperials but it balances well. ABV is definitely noticable, it would be interesting to see how this would hold up to a year or two of cellaring.
