Style and Glass: Imperial Stout; Snifter
ABV, Volume & Calories: 10.5% in 12 fl oz. estimated at 200 C
Purchased at: Joe Canal’s Lawrenceville, NJ for $2.75
Aroma: roasted malts, coffee, sugar, syrup, carbon, toast, winter evenings, fireplace
Visuals: beautiful, exquisite packaging like all Founders brews, dark as midnight, absolutely black, light does not escape, starts with thick tan head, which dissipates over time but does not disappear, lace stays for a while.
Taste: delicious balance, syrupy but not cloying malt flavor, deep and acrid hop flavor afterwards.
Palate: Smooth, silky velvet feel. lingers upon the tongue and in the mouth. Coating, sticky, and delicious.
Overall: What an amazing brew. I’ll have it again, at least 3 times, though I’d love to have it at least once a week.
