Iron Rat Imperial Stout on tap at the brewpub. 10% listed.

Pours dark brown, essentially black, with a good tan head. Decent lacing,

Aroma: faint and mild for style, even after some warming. Smokey, dark roasted grains.

Flavor: Ample dark roasted grains with some burnt toast and char. More bittering hops than expected. Some sweetness too leaving a mild bitterness overall.

Feel: smooth and full, with only some of the alcohol showing. A bit syrupy.

O: a good RIS with well-hidden alcohol.

A-an really deep deep brown. Hardly any light gets through. A big mocha head doesn't last long but does leave nice lacing

S- not much but some mild roast notes. Definitely the low point.

T- it's all here. Big roast coffee notes and nice sweetness. The 10% abv is barely noticed but adds a nice depth to the flavor.

M- nice and smooth. Very good

O- a really good imperial stout.

Poured on-tap from a cask at the Tampa Bay Brewing Co brewery in Ybor City. The beer is jet black, with a dense, chunky, milk chocolate colored head. The nose is like a dark chocolate milkshake, with slight vanilla notes, also. Very creamy and smooth bodied, with heavy vanilla flavors, cocoa nib highlights, and slight boozey tones. Excellent balance amongst some heavy flavors. Aftertaste is very bittersweet chocolate, and slight toasting. The finish is dry and mouth puckering with coffee and dark chocolate characteristics. Great winter warmer.
