Brewed by:
AleSmith Brewing Company
California, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

A well aged bottle of this was shared with my brother-in-law. Pours pitch black with a nice dark brown head. Aroma has great dark chocolate, coffee, and alcohol sweetness. Flavor is that of everythigng black - roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, rich dark chocolates, and a hint of black cherry fruit. Truly an experience. Mouthfeel is also thick and rich. coats the tongue but doesn;t destroy the urge to drink more. If anything. the lingering flavors draw me to drink more. Can't wait for my next trip to SoCal.
