3.18/5  rDev -17.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

I had this brew at Barley' s in Asheville.
The waitress brought it out in a pint glass.
The appearance was black as coal and the head was creamy, tan and tightly laced.
The nose was chocolate, toasty, and some bitter/sweat notes.
The mouthfeel was thick and coating like a good stout should be. Actually I suppose this would be considered a IMP stout since it has an abv of 7%, but it is still lite enough to drink a couple.
The taste was smoth chocolate, coffee and a hint of vanilla bean.
The finish was chalky, chocolatey, and creamy.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at World of Beer in Raleigh on 8/30/12.

A - pitch black with a thick, brown head that had great retention

S - oddly there's no nose, I couldn't smell a thing

T - roasted malts, faint chocolate, some underlying citrus, bitter piny finish, some alcohol

M - medium to full bodied, well carbonated, warming alcohol

The flavor is good though a bit more bitter than I had expected. The appearance was almost perfect. The nose threw me for a loop. I've never had a beer this bold and flavorful that didn't offer a similar aroma. Overall, a decent experience.
