It has a sweet aroma with chocolate, cinammon and chile at the top. Taste is sweet and spicy with a smooth mouthfeel from lactose.
Imperial Stout is a dark beer, ranging from dark brown to pitch black, and a well-formed head. Aroma and flavour tend to be rich and complex, with presence of roasty malts or dried fruits and touches of coffee, caramel or chocolate. Hop flavour can be from medium to high. Imperial Stout is a good choice for barrel-aging, making the aromas and flavours more balanced and smooth.
