Year of New Beer: Imperium, Highland Brewing (Asheville)

Written By: Dion on 04/16/2018

Pretty straightforward nose as chocolate and coffee lead the way, with mild roasted malts and just a hint of char. On the tongue, the chocolate presents a bit more as bitter cocoa and the coffee is a touch green. A very light coconut and vanilla arrive mid-palate and offer enough sweetness to prevent the roast from taking over. Hints of burnt toast on the finish. A little thin in regards to the body, but still pretty tasty.
