Had this at the 5 Seasons Westside. Served up in a tulip. They had me a Imperial Stout.

A: Hits the table as a dark black with a little over half a finger of dark tan head on rest on top. The head has some staying power, slowly falling to a thick ring after 10 or so minutes. The beers body is solid black ink, no light getting through this guy. Lace is pretty good, leaving foam all over the glass.

S: Roasty. This has some really nice roasted malt qualities in this. Grains and the Belgian yeast are present in the nose. Little bit of spice and fruit kickin around in here. Mostly what we have is that heavy malt presence with a nice and light chocolate presence, and some dark coffee as well.

T: Pretty much just like the nose. Getting a lot of roasted malt that brings out a little bit of bitterness. The Belgian yeast brings out some spiciness and fruits (dates and a touch of banana at points). Chocolate is super light here as well which is much appreciated. Not too sweet, allows the roasted malt and grains to come up and be enjoyed. Coffee also comes through as fresh and dark, a little bitter. Dig it.

M: Full bodied with a medium carbonation. The carbonation level could have been a little lower for me. It was a little too high for my liking for the style. The carbonation just takes a way a little from the size and weight of the beer. With that said, still very nice and leaves some coating on the palate. Messes with the sweet (lightly) and bitter parts of the palate. Aftertaste is roasted malt and a touch of coffee.

D: Pretty darned good. This was a very easy drinking Impy Stout for lunch time. I was wary getting such a big beer with lunch, but it proved to not be too sweet and just a fine stout. If I wouldn't have been driving, I would have absolutely had more.

Served In: Tulip
