Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of February 2023. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with pretty much no head and no lacing.
Aroma: Roasty, malty, chocolate, molasses, with notes of caramel, coffee and dark fruits.
Taste: Moderately roasty, chocolate, umami, soy sauce, dried dark fruit, molasses, caramel malt, with a hint of coffee.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Aroma and flavours were fine, but the body was definite lacking and much lighter than I would prefer and expect in an Imperial Stout.
