Intro: A 330ml can packaged in July 2018. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Dark brown to black in colour with a one finger brown head that dissipated fairly quickly to a thin layer but left some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Hazelnut, wafer, cacao, chocolate, fudge, vanilla and a hint of cinnamon.
Taste: Sweet but not overly so, chocolate, hazelnut, wafer, vanilla, bourbon and cinnamon.
Mouthfeel: Moderate to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Nice BA Imperial Stout with good nuttiness and wafer flavours balanced with chocolate and bourbon. Could be fuller though as it was a lighter than expected.
