Apearance - Pours near black with just a hint of red when held up to the light. A one finger, fine bubble light brown head lasts longer than the beer does. Lacing is more like a wall than anything else.
Nose- Solid roast malt, coffee, chocolate with some nuttiness and sweetness showing through.
Palate- Slightly sweeter than expected, but not in a bad way. Tastes as you would expect from the nose, but with toffee, and licorice notes.
Mouthfeel- Creamy, FULL bodied, medium carbonation.
Drinkability- Finishing one makes me want another.
Serving type: on-tap

I do love this beer. in fact, formative beer for me. however; ive tried blackout stout, I've tried expedition. to me, those two rate higher, even avery Czar. just not according to BA. still I respect this beer fully, one of the first imp stouts I've had
lot of bitterness, dark bitter chocolate, coffee beans, hops. creamy, bountiful carbonation. it is good, really good.
still, not my favorite! but a beer I'll still always come back to
