Samuel Smith's Imperial Stout

This pours a dark black color, with a full light-brown head that leaves beautiful lacing behind with each sip. The toasty, roasty aromas of fresh ground coffee, cocoa powder, molasses and licorice immediately entice, with a seam of citrus oil that weaves a sense of brightness throughout. The palate is loaded with rich, decadent chocolate- and roasted-malt flavors, with a lingering hint of sugar plum and raisin on the mildly astringent and bitter finish. With a robust flavor profile, medium carbonation and approachable yet slightly warming alcohol, it's a classic selection for cold-weather enjoyment. Lauren Buzzeo
