Vitamin Sea Brewing Imperial Seven Bells
What the brewers say
"Our rotating Imperial Coffee Stout with cacao nibs and vanilla bean."
What our panel thought
“Coffee-forward aroma with supporting chocolate. Pleasant layers of chocolate, coffee, a hint of nuts, great mouthfeel to roll it all together. Fairly sweet up front but fades into a moderately bitter finish.”
What our editors thought
“Flourless chocolate cake with hazelnut espresso icing in the nose. The sip pulls the similar nutty roastiness, buffered by a softening vanilla note with the warm glow of a tungsten bulb—flattering in its soft definition.”
