Fatehunter (2275) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Almost a finger of tan head. Pitch black body. Smell is roasted malt, charred wood and molasses. Nice and bold. The taste is roasted malt with a touch of sweetness and a dry bitter finish. Pretty good. The body was a little light and fizzy for an imperial stout. A well built ale.
