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.

Bottle. Pours a dark brownish black color. No head to speak of our lacing. Strong aroma of alcohol, malts, caramel, coffee and maybe a touch of apples. Wow what a mouthful. Very silky smooth and rich. Malts, coffee, chocolate and maybe a touch of soy flavoring as well. Very nicely hidden alcohol. Clean and smooth on the finish. I held this brew for about 3 months. Wish I would have drank it sooner.

Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and has reasonable fine carbonation. Odd dark malts, rich and with a trace of cream but also carrying a distinctly tea like tang. Light floralness and a touch of dark fruits. Finishes dry and spicy. Mmm. Okay.
