The aroma of this imposing Imperial Stout recalls a fine marocchino served next to a waffle, with espresso, maple, cacao, vanilla and molasses all commanding attention on the nose. Full and silky on the palate, rich dark chocolate flavors are accented by maple syrup and fresh ground coffee notes, while bourbon spiciness and wood tannins cut through any cloying sweetness.
