A: poured a dark as night black in color with a nice finger worth of head which was dark brown and left plenty of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: not too much going on in the aroma, pretty basic components such as roastiness, some chocolate notes, maybe a hint of molasses and very muted coffee undertones. I did however get some oat grains coming through.

T: like the aroma it carried over to the flavor consisting of milk chocolate notes, slight coffee was noticeable, a bit of roastiness, hints of molasses, and nice oat grain accents with a little bitterness.

M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a sweet, roasty, slight astringent, oat grainy, milky, and slight bitter finish.

O: just an average imperial stout that is IMO way overrated but just OK all around. Didn't see anything special about it.

Poured up black in color with a tan head. Pretty decent head retention given the style.

Aroma was dominated by bitter roast malt with strong notes of coffee and a hint of chocolate, a bit of smokiness.

Taste followed suit with a light sweetness with the smoke presence at the beginning followed by a strong dose of coffee flavors and burnt malts.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied, but pretty smooth.

Overall, it is quite tasty, and I enjoyed drinking it, but I really don't think it's anything to wait in line for or something.

Growler filled yesterday in Greenville,SC.
Poured out, deep cocoa black/tan color. Head is a little thinner than I was hoping for, nonethless a creamy brown espresso tone.
Smells of bitter cocoa, malt,toffee,coffe, heavy on the espresso notes, much more so than actual chocolate. Expected a much heavier hand with the rich chocolate aroma. However the bitter balance from the roasted espresso notes balances rather nicely.
Flavor is suprisingly much lighter than the expectation.Instead of the chocolate explosion, it is much more of a coffee stout.. The finish is bitter, sharp, but alcohol is well hidden.Bitter cocoa notes come out, smoke, caramel, and light spiciness make this seem much lower in ABV than 10%.Cocoa becomesmore pronounced, the silkiness becomes more prominent. I'm digging it!
Drinkablity is good for a normal stout....but I had hoped for a much more Chocolate focused stout. It dosent scream a cocoa orgasm, rather the sexuality is pretty modest.Subdued, slowly revealing many layers
Overall good, but doesn't hit my expectation.Nonetheless, extremely good.
