12 oz single purchased from Lifesource in Salem for the VERY high price of $4.59 stouby (4820) - Holbæk, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2017
Pours a gorgeous dark mahogany almost black body with an attractive creamy tan head.
Aromas of semi dark chocolate and coffee and cream..a litle chili maybe,,something triggers in the back of the nasal passage.
Taste very smooth like creamed coffee ice cream with vanilla nibs and chilis. Milky Italian roast coffee..nice stuff.
Excellent creamy solid and smooth mouth feel. Often these Imperials bog down the tongue..but this none is smooth as butter and no alcohol burn.
As an Oregonian and local beer type i was ready to burn this one..but it is an excellent beer and i wish i could get it fresh on tap.
