Pours a dark opaque coffee brown/black with a substantial but not overblown head. Smell is nutty, roasted coffee.
Taste blew me away from the get go. Coffee, nutty, alchohol, big IBU, it's all there. It's like turning a guitar amp to 11.
My only gripe is that the alcohol taste is just a little bit on the dominant side, but that's a subjective thing (I'd like to taste maybe 10% more malt). But I appreciate that it is a big beer @ 9% ABV.
If you like Imperial Stouts, or want to try something that will put your taste buds on a fun ride this excellent beer is highly recommended.
