Frank (2728) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2014
This is dark brown, almost black, in the glass w/ a tan head of small bubbles that leaves behind spots of lace. It has a big old nose w/ a touch cherry and banana yeast aromas and, more so than that, lots of roasted grain. It becomes even more fruity once tasted which really seems to clash harshly w/ the roasty coffee. I am generally of the mindset that Belgian imperial stouts are a bad idea and this is one beer that proves me right.
