Smuttynose Big Beer Series Imperial Stout

This bold, flavorful selection pours a dense, opaque black color, with a medium mocha-colored head and soft lacing. Upfront aromas of roasted malt, toasted spice, raisin, fig and dried black cherry lead the nose, with additional notes of resiny hop and charred brown bread in the background. Those notes continue through to the creamy, medium-bodied palate, with strong intensity and additional notes of bittersweet Baker's chocolate, caramel, black coffee and cigar-box spice that linger long on the finish.
