Once again, thank you to my mother who picks Hoppin’ Frog up from the brewery.  You would be a momma’s  boy too if your mom stocked your fridge with craft beer.  It was leftover from Christmas, but I kept it cold and brought it back to Chicago to keep me warm.

Tasting Notes:
This double imperial stout poured black with the consistency of motor oil.  A nervous sniff revealed aromas of hops, chocolate and coffee coming from a very thin deep brown head.  With almost no carbonation it still had a full mouthfeel covering the tongue with the same coffee, chocolate and hops as the nose.  At 10.5% ABV this beer lets you know who is the boss and the intense flavor makes sure you can  handle only one bottle of this.  To be honest, I am not sure my taste buds recovered the next morning.
