DE POES STOWT  t_u  t_u  t_u  t_u

Imperial Stout from de Poes, with an ABV of 7.5%. New brew from me.

Pours a jet black with a light tan rocky frothy creamy head. Great lacing.

Lovely aroma of chocolate, coffee, mocha, cocoa powder, burnt malts and
caramel.

Medium bodied, with excellent carbonation it's thick, slightly oily, soft,
smooth, velvety in texture and taste. Nice complexity, well rounded, with
plenty of depth of flavour, and all the above-named aromas are tasted too-
plain and milk chocolate, coffee, mocha, cocoa powder, burnt malts and
caramel. Sweetish start becomes dry and slightly bitter. Excellent brew and
well above average for the style. You would think it's ABV would be 9.0%+.
Highly recommended!

Cheers!
