Description

Dark chocolate, mocha, cinnamon, and molasses aromas all compete for attention on the nose, with a soft alcohol spiciness and dark fruit notes complimenting. Imposing and assertive on the palate, this imperial stout immediately presents espresso, baker’s chocolate, and plum flavors that give way to cinnamon, toffee, and an earthy hop quality. Scoville heat slowly builds with each sip, while a soft bitterness and moderate carbonation provide a counterpoint to this vicious, complex creation.
