Samuel Smith's "Imperial Stout"
Imperial Stout (ABV 7%)

[Best served in a snifter]

Rating: 3.9/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 4/5
Taste: 8/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 16/20

The pour was a deep dark murky black with a large (2-3 finger) light brown rocky head that lasted a decent while leaving behind some really nice residue floating on top thus producing some really excellent lacing.

The aroma was wonderfully robust with a burnt dark bread malt and a mild sweet leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, dark roasted coffee, licorice, some dark fruit and a hint of molasses.

The taste was lightly sweet and malty with a hint of chocolate from the onset then became a mild bitter sweet with a nice note of coffee at the end with the flavor lasting a nice long while proceeding the swallow.

Mouthfeel was nice a full in body and rather creamy and a tad dry in texture with a mild carbonation.

Overall a superb Imperial Stout, very easy to drink and very enjoyable on the taste buds.
