Philadelphia Brewing Shackamaximum Imperial Stout
Philadelphia Brewing Shackamaximum Imperial Stout from my friend Mark. The beer pours a black color with a frothy beige-colored head that leaves specs of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of chocolate, plenty of toasted malts, hints of smoke, and vanilla. The taste is dry and has plenty of dark Belgian-like chocolates, toasted malts, vanilla, and caramel. The finish has an oakiness to it that is nice and dry. The alcohol content is 10.0% ABV. This was a rather tasty Imperial Stout with a great roasted flavor and a light vanilla flavor, all built upon a great dark chocolate base.
