Intro: A 330ml can, with a best before date of 23rd July 2020. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a one finger tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly and left some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Milk chocolate, vanilla, oak, and a touch of spice, maybe its cinnamon.
Taste: Smoked milk chocolate, vanilla, oak, bourbon, leather, and a light chili spice on the throat.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Much better than Cherrbacca (which was released on the same day) in my opinion. Imperial Stouts with a splash of chili spice usually works for me, and continues to do so here. More roast and less pastry, and I’d probably like it even more.
