Westbrook Brewing Co. Gates of S’Mordor Imperial Stout

Made with marshmallow, graham cracker, cocoa nibs, and cinnamon, is Gates of S’Mordor Imperial Stout, 11% ABV from Westbrook Brewing Co. This big stout; was made down in Mt. Pleasant, South Carolina. It only comes in a bomber bottle (1 pint .6 fluid ounces). Now I generally like Westbrook beers. This particular Westbrook beer; pours a thick oil black color with a barley two-finger beige head that is slightly quick fading. The aroma of this stout is chocolatey, and there is cinnamon and vanilla marshmallow. It smells strong. The flavor on this beer is again chocolatey, thick-bodied, cinnamon, vanilla, and marshmallow. The mouthfeel is full and thick. It just sticks to your mouth and tongue. Then it finishes with some roasted chocolate, marshmallow, and a bitter note. Then the aftertaste of lite chocolate and some alcoholic notes. This stout is a big beer. It does get stronger as it warms but does not change much on the flavor profile. Gates of S”Mordor Imperial Stout taste like a nice s’more. I give it a B+. The strength holds it down a little, but I still recommend this imperial stout. Please be kind, stay safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
