_angst_ (3544) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 21, 2015
Draught @ CBC 2015. Pours creamy dark blackish brown with a small mocha head that leaves some sparse trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is malty and tiny fruity estery with roasted malts, burnt caramel, vanilla fudge, chocolate cake, banana bread, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, moist soil, coconut and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and slightly fruity estery. Mouthfeel is soft, round, velvety, roasted astringent, tiny boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and bitter with roasted malts, burnt caramel, banana bread, vanilla fudge, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, coconut and moist soil. A great imperial stout but a bit hot and all over the place for a top grade compared to other Speedway stouts.
