My brother's favorite beer...who can blame him?
This is one of the best imperial stouts available. It pours with a smallish head and minimal lacing. The beer itself is black. I cannot find any reddish tint to this beer. Good start. The aroma is incredible. Perfectly roasted malt, subtle coffee/expresso, and hints of chocolate stand out in the aroma. There is an initial burnt, but nice malt flavor. It is borderline bitter, but before it one really focuses on the burnt flavor there is a burst of sweet malt and chocolate. Perfectly balanced. I cannot imagine a better balance between chocolate and traditional malt.
I am stocking up on this beer. I doubt I can wait Spring through Fall for this one again.
