Beer – #528 – Karl Strauss – Wreck Alley Imperial Stout

I like this because well it is what is says it is. There isn’t an addition like “Chocolate” or “fruit of some kind” or “Coffee” that would guest in the middle. This is an honest and goodness “Stout” that I can discern. The chocolate or Coffee fro the roasted malts (I might be making it up) but what you end with is a beer that is really level drinking, there are no peaks in the flavour, no side shoes and a finish that isn’t dry and hints a some kind of dark fruits. It is perry good and worthwhile.
