The beer pours a deep and dark black, nothing else even when held up to the light. There is about an inch of light brown foamy head, nearly creamy. The aroma is surprisingly light, but get some char and mocha. The taste is also surprisingly light for an imperial stout of 11%
Light char, light dark roasted malt, light coffee, very light dark chocolate.
It is smooth and full and round in the mouth. It hides the high ABV
well, but does have a noticeable warming effect. This stout would make great
sense at 5.0% or so ABV, but I don’t get why
its aroma and taste were made so mild in an imperial style.
