Bottle: thanks, Mike! Black body, no light getting through this one... Good looking, deep leathery mocha cap on top that leaves nice webs of lacing behind & easily foams back up with a swirl of the glass. Lovely aroma with roasty cocoa nibs, milk chocolate, faint licorice, some dark currants, burnt brown sugar, & rich fudge cake. Robust, decadent, & sweet, yet controlled. Taste has lots of creamy, roasted oats with mounds of bittersweet chocolate, brown sugar, & a touch of black coffee beans. A slight prune/licorice bite in the finish with an aftertaste coating dominated by bitter dark chocolate & roasted oats. Nice, relatively thick, mostly creamy body. Wow! Wasn’t expecting much from this, as many other Hoppin’ Frog offerings have let me down, but this was a great imperial stout... One that I would definitely buy again & again if it were available locally!
