This French oak-aged American Imperial Stout has a smoky sweet character and a roasted chocolate base, thanks to Peated, Maris Otter, Caramel and Cara malts.
Look: Clear dark black-brown colour with a foamy beige head. Soft carbonation and nice lasting lacing.
Aroma: Dark roasted and sweet malts, chocolate, caramel and a hint of dried fruits.
Taste: Sweet with more dark malt, caramel and chocolate, some tones of roasted malts and charcoal smokiness. Medium to full-bodied, lingering bitterness and some lasting boozy warmth.
Verdict: Copy that, Sergeant. Because we’d like another one, please.
