COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep dark delight harkens back to the days when such brews were shipped to the Imperial Court of Russia. With a firm roasty maltiness balanced against a generous helping of hops, Northwind has what it takes to stand up to the worst its namesake can dish out! Enjoy it by a roaring fire. Formerly called Iditarod Imperial Stout.

Pours very dark with a thin chocolate head. Moderate roast. Light hops. Drinkable, but not my favorite imperial stout.

Fresh, roasted aroma -- slightly sweet. Good label on a longneck. Dark, pitchy beer with a sturdy light tan head. Flavor is boring and a little creosotic. Mouthfeel is starchy/frothy, body is slightly heavy, overall it’s a little acidic. Wow, I was disappointed with this one. New Leaf Market.

The beer has hints of coffee, but it’s a bit rough compared to most imperial stouts I’ve had. very drinkable but could be more smooth. Black and tan head aroma is of roast coffee.

Mild aroma of light roast , slight chocolate, some mineral/ tinnyness. Taste is mild herbal/perfumey, light berry, diet cola,diet cola in finish as it gets prgressivly worse, glad I dindt buy a sixer of this, easy drinkability but has a diety perfumey like taste. Clove sweetness. Herbal bitter. This kinda sucks for an imperial stout. Bad aftertaste.

12 oz bottle served in a tulip. The beer pours a midnight black with a somewhat thick tan head that shrinks down and leaves nice lacing. Really good looking beer. Aroma is roasted barley, coffee, cocoa, and some woody smells. It is a very roasty smelling beer. Taste is mostly dark roasted coffee and cocoa. It takes on a dark chocolate with cream flavor as it warms up and is a pretty nice sipper. Alcohol is really not visible at all and the beer remains sticky and clings to your mouth. I could have a few of these, pretty nice.

ICEatALAMO (1349) - Troy, Michigan, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle. The pour is black with little head. The aroma is mostly malt with some heavy dark fruits, almost a blackberry and plum aroma. The taste is rater thin for an imperial. A little boring taste compared to the smell. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an inky dark brown with a vigorous (in a good way) chocolate milk colored head. Aroma is almost nothing. Hint of chocolate, metallic. Taste is booze, coffee, smoke, medium mouthfeel, smooth finish.

Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Deep dark brown pour. Medium sized brown foamy head on top of a black colored beer.

Flavours of roast, oatmeal, caramel, malts, light roast to more toast, some mocha, some raisin, light bitter, some chocolate and a creamy edge. Very nice! Aftertaste is roasty, toasty, malty, light chocolate, oatmeal and some grainy toast. Low carbo, creamy oily close to silky mouthfeel, medium to fuller bodied and an oily texture. Nice beer, creamy, round, balanced!
