3.89/5 rDev -6.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Undated 12 oz bottle, believed to be 2012 vintage, served in a snifter.
A rather vigorous pour raised a decent head but htis soon reduced to a thin partial top coat. The body looks thick and black.
Aroma: a nice blend of dark malts and alcohol esters.
Flavor: rich, dark malts without more than a hint of burnt grain. High ABV rather obvious yet mixes nicely with the other flavor components; still it is more tha a little boozy. Marginally a 4.
Feel: full bodied, and then some. Slight alcohol burn makes me think this would be a great candidate for barrel aging.
O: an imperial stout indeed, aromatic and flavorful. Improves with warming, and 15 minutes out of the refrigerator was not enough.
Serving type: bottle
