Isthmus Brewing’s Figaro, a fig and chocolate imperial stout (9% ABV) is intensely dark in colour, crowned by a coffee crema head. The aroma begins with notes of cocoa powder and dark chocolate, gradually changing to include hints of coffee, boozy liquor, and sweet dried figs. The palate brings a torrent of rich chocolate and subtle fig, on a body of smooth almost velvet soft mouthfeel. A light touch of bitterness keeps the sweetness in check, ending in a finish of complex dark chocolate.
