Poured into a tasting glass on tap at the Beer Kitchen in KC.
Pours a dark, dark brown-black with a tan head that leaves loads of lacing all the way down. I could see each sip with a very thick lace. Beautiful! Most perfect appearance, and that is no stretch.
Smell was average, could bring more to the nose. Very roasted notes come through.
The taste is spot on. Perfect stout. Beautiful roasted biscuits, molasses, slight hints of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, cooked oatmeal, dark bread, and even light roast coffee. The hops were more floral than anything else, perfectly balancing out the rich maltiness of this brew.
The penultimate stout.
Deschutes, I want an imperial version of this, now!
Serving type: on-tap
