Cinders and RainCinders and Rain
Notes: Big Big Traditional Imperial Stout. Pale, oats, a blend of US and English Dark grains. No pastry adjunct (even though we like those too). Complex and rich. Chocolate and Roasted marshmallow and slightly scorched brown sugar with caramel tones for days.

A: Pours an opaque yet still clear thick viscous jet black in color with moderate amounts of fine active visible carbonation rising along the edges of the glass and faint dark cola brown + dark chestnut brown + garnet red colored highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to a large patch of very slightly mottled thin film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Strong aromas of charred + roasted + dark + chocolate + caramel + oat malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. Moderate aromas of burnt brown sugar + toasted, almost burnt marshmallow and a light to moderate aromas of herbal + earthy hops.

T: Strong flavors of charred + roasted + dark + chocolate + caramel + oat malts with a light amount of caramel sweetness. That is followed by moderate flavors of burnt brown sugar and toasted, almost burnt marshmallows. Finally there are light to moderate flavors of herbal + earthy hops. Slightly heavier than moderate amounts of lingering roasty bitterness.

M: Just shy of full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth.

O: Easy to drink with very well hidden alcohol (especially considering the strength). Very enjoyable - one of the more enjoyable non-barrel-aged/non-pastry stouts I have had the chance to try recently (I don't find these types of stouts very often anymore).
