O’Dempsey’s “Your Black Heart”
O’Dempsey’s – Atlanta, Georgia USA
Imperial Stout (ABV 8%)

[Best served in a Snifter]

Rating: 3.7/5.0

Aroma: 8/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 4/5
Overall: 15/20

Pour was a deep dark black with an average sized (1-2 finger) medium brown creamy head and had fair lacing.

The aroma was of burnt bread malts, a mild resin hop and a leathery yeast with notes of bitter-sweet chocolate, molasses, roasted coffee and had a pronounced alcohol presence.

Taste was malty sweet and very lightly bitter with a mild notes of chocolate and molasses at first with a nice bitter strong coffee flavor, a hint of smoke and a strong alcohol finish. The flavor hung around for a long duration with the taste of coffee and alcohol left to settle on the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was very full in body and dry yet creamy in texture with a soft carbonation.

Overall a nice and strong flavored Imperial Stout with the coffee and chocolate flavors blending very well with the high alcohol finish.
