Undated bottle at 40 degrees into imperial pint glass
Aroma of roasted malt and a hint of spice.
Head small (< 1 cm), light brown, creamy, fully diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Lacing virtually none – few small clusters of bubbles, not lasting
Body dark brown to black, opaque
Flavor of roasted malt, chocolate, and a little tea spiciness. No alcohol, no hops, no diacetyl.
Palate medium to full, creamy, soft carbonation

Good. Very, very good. I wish I had purchased several bottles. Besides beginning as a lovely stout, the tea adds an interesting dimension and slight spiciness. This seems a little thinner than the Gonzo Imperial Porter, yet is still creamy and smooth.

Pours jet black with a brown head. In the aroma, sweet tea with a small roasted malt. In the taste, roasty caramel, with coffee and sweet tea notes all the way through. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer roasty caramel malt in the aftertaste. The smell and taste of tea, with the look and aftertaste of a stout, interestingly different.
