Served in a half-pint glass at the Bow Bar in Edinburgh.
A: Firm tan head. The body, seemingly jet-black, shows chestnut hues in direct light.
S: Sweet chocolatey malts with a roasted undertone. Coffee notes and trace alcohol. Good but not great.
T: Quite nice. Sweet and smooth. Chocolate. Rich malts. Roasted but not bitter towards the endtaste. The aftertaste is light and molasses-sweet without being sticky. Too thinly sweet for my tastes, and not quite balanced, but still a good effort. Black Ops was served room temperature, perhaps to its detriment.
M: A smooth beer struggling between thin and rich. The latter usually wins out.
D: Quite drinkable for the stile, but by no means the best imperial stout I've tried. Tentatively recommended.
Serving type: on-tap
