While this is undoubtedly a solid imperial stout with a pungent coffee nose, the cardamom pods give off too much of a menthol flavor and the viscosity is too thick for me on the finish. Good, but too much smoked mint for me. Not too boozy though.

Coffee is muted. Slightly minty, with hints of chocolate. Smooth and easy drinking.
