MotoSonora Brewing Road of Bones Imperial Stout
What the brewers say
"Big, bold and bitter like dark chocolate. Deep, dark, and rich with a little bit of bite."
What our panel thought
"Smells like when you pull bread from the oven, its edges on the verge of burning; pear and stone-fruit esters, light roast, cocoa, dank hops. Assertive roast and dark fruit linger into the aftertaste. Ultra-smooth, like an imperial black nitro IPA."
What our editors thought
"Anise and minty-herbal hops drive the nose; faint roast. The sip is loose and light, like a big dry stout—lean, minimal—without the expected bitterness and body."
