Cherry Cordial Imperial Stout

Southern Tier's Blackwater Series is usually a treat. Let's see about their Cherry Cordial Imperial Stout, "a dessert beer with notes of chocolate and cherry." 10.0% alcohol.

Nice chocolate aroma with hints of cherries. Rich and luscious texture, full of creamy chocolate and sweet maraschino cherries. Some smoke and chalky hints too.

Definitely a sweet dessert beer, but some bitter relief does exist. Alcohol is noticeable, but dangerously hidden, and also helpful cutting into the sweetness. Chocolate flavors linger long after each sip.
