COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Stout is the biggest of the black beers and to drink Baird Dark Sky is to experience a foreboding libation. The aroma is gorgeously complex (dry hopping with American Centenniel & Amarillo hops) and the flavor is a stunning smorgasbord (chocolate, toffee, herbs, coffee, licorice, etc.). The mouthfeel is soft and enveloping. The finish is piquantly acrid and warming. Note:- ABV may vary each year.

tightslice (1529) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 7, 2018
Bottle from K&L in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is licorice, malt candies, earthy roasted malts, vanilla, dark coffee grounds. Taste is earthy vanilla, dry cocoa, bitter coffee, vegetal hop bitterness. This was definitely intriguing but in the end it was overrun by the bitter vegetal finish (most likely due to the dry hopping).
