Cloudy brown color. Delicate, interesting aromas and flavors of spiced toffee, sarsaparilla float, mincemeat pie, and licorice with a soft, vibrant, finely carbonated, fruity sweet medium-full body and a peppery, complex, long finish imparting notes of salty roasted nuts, pepper mole, grilled citrus, and arugula finish. A vibrant, refreshing, well balanced imperial stout.
