Description

Cinnamon, dark chocolate, and raisin aromas meet black pepper and sandalwood on the nose, with dark fruit notes a hint of smoke also present. Full and viscous on the palate, this imperial stout offers coffee, semi-sweet chocolate, and molasses flavors that give way to cinnamon, toffee, and a spicy, woody quality imparted by Spanish cedar. Scoville heat slowly builds with each sip, while a soft bitterness and moderate carbonation provide a counterpoint.
