While the folks at Lagunitas are known for their hops-driven beers, they are no slouch with malt, either. The Imperial Stout is an opaque brown but not quite black, while the head delicately clings to the side of the glass. The emerging aromas include charred wood, mocha, and licorice. The body is medium to full with a nice richness. There’s some burnt bitterness in the mid-palate followed by a lingering cacao finish. Consider skipping your evening Scotch and try this brew instead. Pairs nicely with a cigar by the campfire.
