Served at 50 degrees. Best before date 28/02/2009.
A: Poured a totally opaque black with a finger of tan head into a pint glass. Head retention is decent as is settles into a thick looking film with bigger floating patches. Leaves impressive lacing on the glass.
S: A swirl brings forth aromas of sweet chocolate and roasted grains. A good yet simple smell. You know what you're getting into.
T: Oh wow, a wall of milk chocolate hits even as your taking the sip in. This is sweet chocolate as opposed to the the bitter chocolate taste some other stouts/Impy stouts have. This is one enjoyable beer and quite the fix for a sweet craving. It really feels like you're downing liquid chocolate. Roasted maltiness is present all along and hops make a faint appearance half-way and then cede once again to the chocolate.
M: Medium body with pleasant carbonation. Creamy but not as smooth as some others I've had. Leaves a slightly sticky feel.
D: Goes down way too easy. I'm having a hard time pacing myself through it.
Overall, a delicious beer that I wanted to try for some time now. I now feel like I need to keep a few of these around. Would be perfect with dessert.
