Outside the Lines imperial stout brewed with coffee, vanilla beans, and cardamom

 

Final Rating: 4.64/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Trillium tulip glass. Thanks Steve for picking this up for me.

Pours a dark brown, nearly black body with a 2 finger brown head that reduces at a moderate rate, leaving spotty lacing in it’s path.

Aromas are delicious and inviting.. mocha, roasted coffee, vanilla, milk chocolate, some spices in the background.

Awesome on the tongue as well.. freshly ground coffee, sweet milk chocolate, roasty follow through, dark chocolate and light vanilla, finishes with bittersweet chocolate.

Mouthfeel is fantastic – one of the thicker stouts I’ve had.. heavy mouthfeel, silky rich body, low carbonation.

Overall a fantastic beer! If you’re in the market for a rich stout with a lot of flavor (and alcohol!), this is the one for you!
