This is Todd Mott’s newest brewery. Todd is the inventor of Kate the Great so his once a year Imperial Stout called “Mott the Lesser” is a nice name. The caption reads “Sometimes, less is great!” Good one 🙂
AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A – Dark brown to black with small tight bubbles.
S – A ton of roasted chocolate aroma with some smoked malt along with candy and coffee.
T – There is a ton of roasted malts in this one. Coffee chocolate, almost no sweetness, dessert wine, raisin and fig
M – Thin, decent carbonation but nothing explosive.
O – This is a great ’classic’ Imperial Stout. No barrel aging, no adjuncts, no frills. But it’s a great modern stout brewed in the classic 10 years ago “why would you barrel age this?” stouts.
