COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Wade into darker waters with Lazy Magnolia’s Black Creek Imperial Stout. Black as the bayou on a moonless winter night, this 8.5% Southern-Style Imperial Stout begins with aromas of dark chocolate and coffee, followed by a savory blend of roasted barley and caramel flavors, with a velvety-sweet finish. Our full-bodies Mississippi dark ale is the perfect winter companion to warm and relax your taste buds with every slow and delicious sip. Drink Lazy.

Pours black with a small tan head that lasts throughout. Aroma purely consists of roasted malt; coffee, dark chocolate and nuts. Tastes are more of the same. Silky body with a bitter chocolaty finish. A very nice, elegant beer. I’ve come to learn that dark beers are Lazy Magnolia’s specialty.

airrick2003 (629) - Louisiana, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Appearance: pours with a smaller tan head that is very creamy, the beer is very black and opaque Aroma: kind of faint, dark roasted malt, coffee Taste: more of a sweet stout than a bitter stout, milk, coffee, light and gentle bitter finish Palate: heavy mouthfeel, minimal coffee bitter aftertaste, average carbonation Overall: I like this, hides the abv extremely well, kind of on the sweeter side, lacks aroma though ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
