Starriest NightStarriest Night
Notes: It is, well, the starriest Starry Night we've ever released. Brewed with a base 11.5% milk stout, we elevated this decadent treat with more of that rich hazelnut, toasted coconut, and milk chocolate goodness than ever before.

Deep ebony body; head starts thick and rich then fades to a thin tannish wisp. Outstanding aroma of charred grains and coconut; deeply roasted nuts (hazelnuts apparently); dark, sweet chocolate. The taste has incredible richness and depth, mirroring the the aroma; the coconut is more pronounced along with the hazelnut, and the chocolate comes across with a decadently sweet milk chocolate overtone. Heavy, silky smooth body; rich and oozy; amazing residual sugar tones; overwhelmingly sweet mouthfeel throughout.

What a truly out of sight imperial stout! The head fading to a bare wisp is the only negative, and that's a minor visual thing. But as soon as your nose inhales the aroma, and your taste buds and palate become coated with the decadent dark goodness infused within the beer, well, don't be surprised if you get gobsmacked with a case of sensory euphoria. The high alcohol content is essentially well-hidden, and despite the relatively immense sweetness involved, it is far from cloying. The coconut and hazelnut additions are what really makes this beer balanced as well as explosive and unique. Surely not for everyone, but if the keywords rich, complex, depth, and uniqueness (with regards to dark beers) interests you, do try it.

Pours near-black with tan lacing.

The nose is pure hazelnut. Nutty and sweet.

The taste opens with hazelnut and chocolate before cherry mid-palate and mild booze on the finish. The lightly boozy finish curbs the sweetness. Opens like Nutella and finishes like a more typical imperial stout. I don't distinctly taste the coconut addition.

The mouthfeel is medium+. Substantial and lightly syrupy.

Overall, very good. Sweet. I'm a sucker for hazelnut.
