We enjoyed talking beer with Matt Robbins as he served us this at the PA Microbrewers Fest. He said that this would be the first in a line of specialty stouts that they want to brew. Very fresh - probably too hoppy for those of you that like your Imp.Stouts more mellow. Huge aroma - hops and sweetened coffee. Flavors were almost overwhelming - thick sweet chocolate cream coffee, plums and raisins, big roasty bitterness. Palate was thick but also very vinous at times that and the dark fruits gave it a real wine quality. Finished long and hoppy, lingering roasts. Reminded me of a Blackout Stout, but thicker. Our favorite beer of the festival.
