Chocolate truffles, cocoa, espresso coffee, burnt currants, the sweetness of a sherry - all come to mind when enjoying an Imperial Stout. A rich porter of English origin brewed to withstand the long voyage from London to Czarist Russia. The classic "Winter Warmer". Big, Strong, Malty Stout.

3/29/16. Bomber bought 11/2014. Min head and carbonation. Light lacing. Very subtle nose. Aging has played down the fruit and amped the dark roasty notes. Not as nice a mouthfeel as I would have expected for 10%. A bit one dimensional ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
