brewskis (123) - Saint John, Indiana, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Pours dark as night with a two and a half finger mocha colored head that dissipates slowly and leaves a wonderful, thick lacing. Just a beautiful looking beer with an impressive head for a strong beer. Smells of bittersweet chocolate, some expresso, vanilla, some hoppy notes like grass or floral when it warms, lots of roasted breadiness as well some brown sugar sweetness. Taste starts with the bittersweet chocolate, expresso, some vanilla. In the middle, tons of roasted and bready malt shine through that smooths out the bitter chocolate and expresso. The finish then turns a little more bitter. This time it’s from the hops, not the bittersweet chocolate. Also get the expresso, chocolate, roasted flavors, some brown sugar, maybe some peat. As it warms more of the hop characters show through and you get more floral notes on the finish as well. Pretty full body with a very creamy and rich mouthfeel. Nothing Christmasy about this, just a great, rich imperial stout.
