A- Opaque dark chocolate with a lingering 3 finger creamy mocha head

S- Coffee & malt

T- Roasted coffee followed quickly with a bitter chocolate and a sweet hoppy alcohol finish. Clean with a nice bitter

M- Solid, good body, creamy

O- A very well made beer i would gladly enjoy either by itself or with a meal. I expected an Imperial to have a big alcohol taste yet the alcohol in this is well balanced with the overall flavors. Good mix of chocolate and coffee.

Pours dark like molasses with a coffee colored head that hangs around for the duration.

Smells of coffee, chocolate, molasses, and malt.

Big malt bomb with a bitter coffee/chocolate punch. Not overly sweet at all. The slight sweet caramel notes are well balanced by rich bitter notes of chocolate, coffee, and molasses. This is one big decadent brew, and my tatse buds are dancing.
