The Smuttynose Imperial Stout pours and looks like a general stout. The head does leave some lacing after each drink on the glass that holds until the next drink. It has a great smell. It’s in between a dark chocolate and milk chocolate with a few hints of coffee and caramel mixed in. The feel and taste of the Stout are great. Tastes like a light roast coffee mixed with hot chocolate. Overall this is a great tasting beer and it gets bonus points for coming the big beer bottle of 1 Pint and 6 Ounces.
