This is-I am led to believe-an American Imperial Double Stout. Whatever it is, it’s quite intense. The aroma doesn’t give much away, but the taste is as big as you might expect. There is a definite alcohol buzz to it, but plenty of roast malt, dark chocolate and peaty liquorice to offset it. I’m presuming the whisky element makes it presence felt with the slight vanilla tone that adds some balance and subtlety. Heavy but satisfying.
