Lucille is an American Imperial Stout brewed by Terrapin Beer Co., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a tulip pint glass from a bottle.
The stout pours black and is topped by an inch-thick head of brown foam that reduces slowly. A smattering of sticky lace clings to the glass.
The aroma is savory with a scent of hickory and smoke.
The palate is decadent with syrupy molasses, chocolate, and a touch of vanilla; balanced to a lesser extent by an earthy roast from a trio of woods and mild chili pepper.
Its feel is rich and smooth with low carbonation and a full body.
Lucille tastes a tad sweet with little hops presence, and not quite enough roast. Although it’s not mind-blowing, this Imperial Stout is still an enjoyable brew.
