Oily jet-black. An oaky creaminess on the nose is reminiscent of other barrel-aged brews but accompanied by a high octane background of alcohol. Bitter baker’s chocolate on the initial attack that smooths-out to a creamy chocolate truffle on the palate. Hardly any bitterness on the finish but I can’t find any hint of the cranberry fruit.
.@FlyingMonkeys @BareNakedLadies Imperial Chocolate Stout
Motor oil black; Black Forest cake nose; chocolate & cherry on the palate with only a hint of bitterness.
