Parkway Brewing's For Lovers Only is an imperial stout that's named in honor of legendary rockabilly band Southern Culture On The Skids. It pours black with maroon highlights around the edges of the glass. There isn’t a lot of tan head, but the lace hangs on. I picked up on chocolate in the aroma, but mostly coffee and caramel and a little hint of grapefruit. The flavor is rich and strong. It’s warm on the front of the tongue, with walnuts and chocolate malt in big notes, and then a little twang on the swallow. I’m gonna have a few more of these before they’re gone. I liked it a lot.
