This Imperial Stout pours a dark chocolate black with a very light tan head that has decent retention. The aroma is roast coffee and dark chocolate up front with some hints of vanilla and dark malt sweetness. The flavor is similar up front with the coffee and chocolate but then becomes a mild sweetness with vanilla and some earthy and nutty characteristics. The finish has a perfect balance of chocolate and coffee bitterness with a chocolate and dark malt sweetness. The mouthfeel is thinner for the style, but still has a nice smooth and creamy texture. I would not hesitate to try this one!
