4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark black, very creamy. Strong lacing. Lots of coffee, hint of chocolate. Well balanced. I like this.
Draft sample poured from a growler that Shawn brought to iTap-Soulard on 3/18/11. Thanks again, Shawn! I also had some more once everyone got their share. Pours an opaque brown color with a small, creamy tan head. Gentle aroma of roasted malts, toast, nuts, chocolate, and mild coffee roast. The flavor carries the same slate of notes, and so, so smoothly and balanced. Medium-full bodied, with a rich, smooth, roasty mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Very nice imperial stout.
