72 Imperial (Breckenridge)

I heard good reviews for this chocolate cream stout and grabbed a six pack when I saw this occasional release earlier this year.

General Thoughts
Look and Smell: This dark brown-black brew smelled of brownies and coffee liqueur. I got a slight cinnamon aroma. The head settled to a slick on the top.

Taste: The rich thickness coated my tongue. It was chocolaty. It had a hot chocolate flavor with a sugary aftertaste.
