Pours a nearly opaque deep brown to black with dark ruby hues beneath the generous mocha head which slowly dissolves to leave a thin ring of lacing.
Lets tackle nth the aroma and flavor at once as they seem to mirror each other for the most part and it is the tale of two beers. As advertised this brew is both imperial and offers traditional smoked malts at the same time. Wen first poured the beer is much more smoke forward similar to that of a rauch bier. As it warms the chocolate notes really step forward. The smokiness remains throughout the beer on the palate.
A fairly robust brew with subtle carbonation, a full body and a pleasant smoky finish.
A great beer in my. Opinion and underrated to boot. Tons of character both style Ppropriate and innovative.
