Appearance: Brilliant deep dark brown with a 1” tan foam cap. Smell: Rich and chocolaty with a whiff of tobacco. Taste: Creamy chocolate with some grain notes. Mouthfeel: Medium body - light for an imperial stout and above average carbonation.

I enjoyed this from the bottle in a snifter at cellar temp.
The color is black and opaque with thin beige head with frothy with fine bead and spots of lace stick with good retention. The smell is fruity with dark cherry aroma and woody deep dark sugar smell wtih mild caramel from the malt with some cocoa accents. The feel is very good with moderate sweetness and mild roast with low bitterness medium carbonation and semi-dry finish with alcohol that is almost non apparent.

The taste has a strong chocolate malt character which I like with some caramel and light raisin with subtle spiced middle and light woody accent with hint of coffee-like earthy taste with a fruity dried type flavor in the mostly dry finish. Overall I consider this a pretty top notch stout. I would definitely try to find this again - a very good example of the style.

Faint banana in the nose. Slightly sweet stout, very unremarkable. Not a bad stout but so many other better stouts out there.

Pours a dark brown to black with thin light brown head. Smells of dark roast mocha and chocolate. Tastes nutty, mocha, dark malt, sweet cocoa and a little astringency. Medium body, medium carbonation with dark roast malt and cocoa after taste.
