small frothy white head. fair lacing. mostly diminishing. flat thick light amberish-brown body (it’s actually hard to describe this hue). aroma: heavy roasted nutty malt, milk chocolate, mild coffee, raisin, wood. if: moderate sweet bitter. ff: moderate sweet heavy bitter; long duration. palate: medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, chalky heavy alcoholic finish. Forte aquecimento alcoólico, leve presença de café no paladar, sobrepujada por álcool e toques amadeirados, considerada como IS, é muito diferenciada, amargor pungente, escalante, gredoso, é uma experiência que deu certo. R$ 63,90. Bottle 3331/7909. Dulçor tem a presença de frutas secas, lembrando uva-passa, principalmente. Excelente cerveja, principalmente pela quantidade de nuances surpreendentes que apresentou a esse estilo que, para mim, está caracterizado justamente pela falta delas. Na segunda metade da cerveja, o café ganha força, mas mesmo assim, continua sobrepujado pelo álcool e pelo amargor amadeirado. Baixa drinkability. 320 s

"Deconstructed imperial blonde stout".
We were handed this blindfolded in brewdog camden last night. It felt like a dark beer. Roasted coffee and chocolate on the nose, thick in the mouth with delicious fruity coffee finish with a balancing sweetness and very deceptive for its hefty ABV! Took the blindfold off and it was mid-blonde! Liekd it so much had to get a third afterwards.
