Imperial Stouts aren’t exactly known for being demure. And with a name like Northwind, I expect this offering from Two Brothers to have some punch.
Pours like it should. Black with a dark brown head. In love with the aroma, charred wood, vanilla, and dark fruits. Surprisingly smooth and creamy. The flavor isn’t bludgeoning, but what is there is tasty and well balanced. Deep roasted malt, burnt marshmallows, and eventually toffee.
Not the biggest Imperial Stout out there, but quite tasty. Quaffable, to say the least.
