The mouthfeel was smooth. It’s definitely got a creamy edge and the initial taste was of sweet malt and chocolate. This gave way to more noticeable coffee flavours, but still quite balanced in nature. The alcohol, which you might expect to be more prominent, was kept well in check by the roast flavours. It finished with noticeable, but not overpowering, roast bitterness.
Overall this was a solid performer. Perhaps not the greatest ever example of an Imperial Stout, but if you’re a fan of this style; once it’s warmed up, there’s lot of enjoyment to be had sipping this one.
