COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Combined with its full-bodied richness, this symphony of flavors is what makes Imperial Stout the ultimate sipping beer. BJís brewers donít hold back in their interpretation of this classic style.

Not terrible, but nothing to write home about if you have a developed palate. Good transition dark beer for the bud lite drinkers.

radio_nowhere (697) - Maryland, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Draft at BJís in Frederick, MD; served in a tulip glass. Very dark brown color with dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste adds notes of light coffee, sugar, caramel and some fruity esters. Medium-heavy body, low carbonation, dry, semi-creamy with slight bitter roast finish. For a RIS somewhat thin and sweet, overall decent dessert beer that night.
