I had this on tap at Barcade in Philly, served chilled in a goblet.

The color is black with viscous appearance when swirled with light thin tan cap w/ fine bead, moderate amount of lace sticks. The smell has a cocoa powder and light caramel combination with deep woody and almost molasses nose with strong alcohol aroma and light roast scent with dried fruit sweetness. The feel is very good with fruity tanginess from the yeast and medium carbonation with strong warming alcoholic body with semi-dry finish and spice elements throughout.

The taste is good with dark fruit like raisin up front and chewy caramel with mild toasted grain and woody hops more toward mid palate with mild alcohol increasing with a cocoa/dark chocolate flavor blending with light caramel in the finish and a slightly prune-like flavor which seems yeast derived. The overall impression is good, a quality imperial stout with lots of malt and alcohol in the taste-worth a try.
