Well, now you've done it. You've stepped in deep stuff, and your old, crusty leather boots are making sucking sounds as you lurch 'em out of the mud. But wait! Your boots have slipped off, and now your toes are wiggling ankle-deep in that sludge. But are you sure that's not your beer you've stepped into? Being stucked in the dark stuff means only one thing—that you'll become one with the mud and tilt back a pint of this outrageously hearty and double-dark stout. And as your feet struggle for their freedom, confusion takes over your tongue, because your senses are overwhelmed by an astonishing exhibition of flavors. First you are seized by the chewy richness of coffee, cocoa and bittersweet toffee, and then you are grasped by the tarry delight of the dark fruits like currant, plum and raisin. And like the mud wrapped around your feet, your senses will not want to let go—so don't fight it. Stand there proudly in the muck and mud and revel in incredible complexity of this double imperial stout!
