Notes:

Now this has aged plenty it's really really good. Boozy strong, dark fruit and malt flavours, quite thick in the mouth but I like it that way. A little on the sweet side but the carbonation helps keep it from being sickly. The yeast comes through enough for me to know it's a belgian style beer. A sipper. So complex! Up there in my top 5 I've brewed, maybe even top 3. Maybe even number 1... but I loved the imperial stout too...
