4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Portion of a 500ml bottle into a Hunahpu’s snifter. From notes.
A: Pours a dark copper color. The head is a one finger cream shade.
S: There’s a lot of sweet caramel and brown sugar which I half expected. What really struck me is the strong vanilla qualities the aroma also provides.
T: This has a lot of vanilla to open the flavor profile. After a bit, raisin/caramel sweetness gives way to a balanced, dry mineral finish. Really pleasant, and complex to boot.
M: I really like the creaminess of this one. The body is of medium texture, and it coats the tongue smoothly.
O: This had a level of richness to it that many of the imperial stouts I had that day lacked. It’s not super easy to drink, and it’s kind of pricey, but it’s a great one to savor slowly.
