Heavy Petal™, an Imperial Stout, is the first in Forbidden Root's new single origin cacao series. It offers a deeply fruity cocoa nose with dark, roasty undertones. The flavor is rich and just a little sweet at first, leading to dry bittersweet chocolate notes and a contrasting nuttiness. There is a long, clean fruity/floral finish with lingering pecan aftertaste alongside the crisp, roasted chocolate flavors. Heavy Petal is best served cool, in a snifter.
