Description

Aromas of fresh-ground espresso beans, vanilla, and alcohol spiciness dominate the nose in this imposing Imperial Stout. The palate finds strong flavors of fudge, coffee, penuche, and raisin pudding balanced by moderate carbonation and assertive German hop flavor and bitterness, while the sweetness of vanilla rounds out the beer’s long finish.
