3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to my Secret Santa Blomster for this one!
Deep black with a tall fading head of creamy tan.
Interesting aroma that combines licorice, cocoa and tobacco.
Sweet up front with some bitter roast malts in the finish.
Quite different from most Imperial Stouts.
