Lakefront Brewing, 25th Anniversary Imperial Stout, Beer Geek Review 241

http://www.lakefrontbrewery.com/beer/bombers/25th-anniversary-series/imperial-stout

We only turn 25 once, and to celebrate, we brewed a rich imperial stout with cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, and cherry purée. First of four in our series, it pours a deep, dark black with a mocha brown head that gradually retreats to the edges of the glass. A strong chocolate aroma arises, followed by sweet malt and mild tart cherry. The full, dense mouthfeel yields a malty sweetness followed by chocolate, cherry, and vanilla flavors, then finishes with a slight alcohol warmth, leaving roasted malt and chocolate notes until the next sip.
Enjoy this beer with rich, chocolatey desserts: chocolate cheese cake, cherry chocolate devils food cake, or just a chunk of dark chocolate.
