What the brewers say

“Aromas include coffee, bitter chocolate, caramel, black currant, and blueberry. The flavor initially follows the nose, then a pop of smooth bitterness and a lingering, roasty finish.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Chocolate mocha. Medium fresh hops aroma (woody and earthy).Fruit esters (pear and peach). Fresh grass. Light caramel, moderate roasty, strong chocolate, touch of vanilla, light sweetness.”

Flavor: “Chewy sweet. Cocoa chocolate flavor has a slight dusty character. Hops bitterness is down the middle, does not linger into aftertaste. Aftertaste of chocolate and caramel malt. Big caramel, moderate roast, moderate plum and date, light roast astringency, light umami.”

Overall: “Quite tasty. Love the sweet coffee notes, very mocha-like. Big full-bodied imperial stout with a fair bit of sweetness and just a touch of hops and ethanol. An awesome beer to share with friends, but I’d be reluctant to tackle it solo.”
