Black, oily body, with a small, dense, dark brown head.
Aroma of coffee, liquorice, very dark chocolate, tobacco, spices, some hops.
Tastes of espresso, liquorice, dark chocolate, molasses, tobacco, wood, alcohol.
Full, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes roasty-bitter, dry, alcohol warming, with liquorice, coffee, wood, some tobacco.
Very nice. A pretty extreme Imperial Stout, very dark and roasty-bitter. The nose is a bit flat compared to the taste. Overall I prefer it a bit smoother and more balanced, but still an enjoyable sipper.
