Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing opaque black in the glass with a thin brown head that dissipates to patches with slight lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, chocolate, vanilla; a bit nutty. Flavor is dark toasted malt, vanilla, dark chocolate, nuts and mild coffee in the finish. Lingering coffee, chocolate with mild coconut. Medium bodied with light to moderate creaminess. A rich, luxurious imperial stout with a fine mixture of flavors and fine complexity. The chocolate and coffee flavors are dominant, but mild coconut and vanilla are present as well. This is not a fresh bottle and the coconut may have faded a bit over time, but is still clear in the finish. One of the great stouts where the flavor build and gets more complex in the seconds after a taste, leaving a finish that invites more tasting. I really like this a lot. Arrow Lodge has been on my list of breweries to try, but always seemed to be sold out when I visited SoCal. If this is typical of their beer, I can see why. I hope to revisit them soon and glad to have snagged this bottle. Recommended.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into my Bruery tulip.

Glossy, drab dark brown liquid with a fizzy chamoisee cap. Vague lacing, thin sticky sheets of tears, poor retention.

Roast barley, chocolate malt, and cocoa nibs in the nose. Faint hops, stone fruit, and nuttiness around the edges.

Lush, dark chocolate smothered coconut on the palate. Long, slow finish unfurls an array of roast malt, and cocoa notes. The vanilla is present, but more as an increased suggestion of sweetness, rendering the earthy finish medium rather than medium-dry. Strong, but well balanced.

Medium-bodied, faintly oily, and moderately warming (though the alcohol provides more flavor than heat). Carbonation is a little low perhaps.

Excellent stout - the adjuncts all contribute flavor without overwhelming the base beer - not a great value, especially without barrel aging, but a good beer none-the-less.
