2012 kate into a kate snifter.
A - black with minimal dark brown carbonation.
S - dark malts, dark fruits, a little chocolate.
T - malt and chocolate/coffee backbone, notably livened up by some fruit from the port wood influence. brighter-tasting than a lot of russian imperials, even including a little fresh hop character. like everyone else seems to note, the sweetness is pleasantly rolled back, which makes this an extremely well-balanced stout.
M - rich with very light, lively carbonation.
O - kate is perhaps not the stunner that some other imperial stouts are, but it presents an interesting mix of flavors and integrates them seamlessly. well done!
