So when I saw that a local craft beer bar was having a night promoting the Big Eddy series (to include free snifters) I was intrigued. Mostly excited about free glassware. Their imperial IPA was good. Pretty amber and clear; the smells of pine, citrus, and malts was pleasant and somewhat muted. A little sweeter than expected; apricot, pine, caramel. Enjoyable but I love big IPAs that are really bitter. This one was fine and certainly more enjoyable than Berry Weiss. B
Anyways, this imperial stout is great. Heavy on the coffee, vanilla, bit of bitter hops. I'm feeling the alcohol but not tasting it; very drinkable. Way smooth and creamy. I'd get this one again. A
...and free snifters? A+ all the way.
