Thanks kajser! Almost pitch black, just slightly tinged with amber, creamy off white head. Hmm... the aroma isnít immediately appealing, there are admittedly red wine notes, interesting, but with dull dogfood maltiness underneath. Caramel, dry. Just slightly stale in a way, otherwise OK. Taste... remarkably light, red wine, fruity grapey notes are evident, not much underneath, but actually quite pleasant. Superbly hidden alcohol. Good maltiness but mostly near the finish, caramelly. Fruity finish, dry. Interesting. A tasty beer, but a completely atypical Imperial stout. Ended up being slightly on the sour side. Ooof dunno what to think about this.
