Notes: Fox in the Stout Imperial Salted Chocolate Stout: cocoa nibs and fresh vanilla beans along with flaked oats for body make this a big rich dessert stout worthy of its Fox in the Snow brownie inspiration.

12 ounce can, canned on 12/09/2019, thanks once again to Brutaltruth for this brew! Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice and mostly sweet, the brew smells like chocolate, caramel, saltiness, and malted milk balls. Taste is similar to the aroma, but has the addition of some roasted malt and vanilla flavors. This brew is all about the sweet flavors, but with that being said it's not overpoweringly sweet. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's creamy and smooth and has a moderate amount of carbonation. If you like imperial and/or sweeter tasting stouts, then give this one a try!

From the growler via Jungle Jim's in a snifter. This beast pours a
dark blackish brown with thin cola highlights and a nice head of
off white khaki foam that settles to a thin ring, light dusty layer, and
sports some mighty fine lacing. Nose of chocolate, caramel, subtle
salt notes, light char, and moderately dark roasted goodness. Flavors....
whoa--this is one to pay attention to. Light salt and caramel are
obvious with dark roasted malts and subtle coffee along with a
lightly earthy malt cocoa note with subtle char. Very nice mouth
feel; full body, smooth, rich, medium light carbonation that supplies
some needed lift, and a medium sweet and roasted finish with a
touch of salt.

overall----fantastic work.

Nuff said!

Cheers

This is probably the biggest Seventh Son I've had the pleasure of trying. It's a big brew, no doubt about it.

It pours an ordinary stout black with a decent head that subsides. It has no nitro or other big head effect. The smell is verymalty - some chocolate smell with the sweet malts, not much hops. It also is not yeasty and only a little roasty. The taste has a little funk under it that wasn't in the smell and the booze takes a while to come back at you, but it does. It is very strong.

Recommended as a nice sweet imperial that does not skimp on alcohol.

Description: Appearance is black, inky and with a minimal khaki head. Smell is sweet - not roasted/coffee - with caramel, cream, chocolate and a hit of salt. Taste is similar but with more of a roasted character and the milky creaminess comes out. Caramel is apparent and overall has a chocolate milk quality to it. Feel is smooth and creamy with minimal carbonation.

Overall: 4.25 (This beer is good and I would likely drink it again) Very solid stout. I'm not a big coffee fan so this was a hit with me. It's sweet without being overly so and all of the flavors work well together. The salt and caramel are the stars here and add a really nice element.

Canned on 2/13/19. 12oz can poured into a tulip. Pours almost black with a creamy khaki head that falls leaving nice retention and lacing. The aromas have vanilla and cocoa leading the way. Some floral and fresh fruit notes. Malts are there. The flavors basically follow the nose for the most part. More vanilla leading the way along with some caramel and cocoa. The salt comes through in the finish without dominating. It's on the sweeter side, but it's definitely not cloying or over the top at all. Solid malt backbone. Alcohol is well hidden and goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's fluffy, smooth and dangerously drinkable.

This is a solid stout. The salted chocolate and vanilla both do their thing. It might not be "mind blowing", but it's enjoyable stuff. Not bad at all.
