OminouSC2 (590) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
Classic Imperial Stout with a twist. Aromas of soy, roasted malt, chocolate, cherries and coffee. The cherry/sherry combination doesnt add much to the taste though - it drowns within the bitter-sweet flavors of the Imperial Stout, even though it adds some sourness. The concept of this beer sounds really cool, but it doesnt really work out as intended I feel.
