I have enjoyed this world class stout for a while. Not sure why I never reviewed, but figured now was as good of a time as any. It is the epitome of a stout in the color, pour, head. Dark in the bottom, lighter on top. full of chocolate and coffe in the nose and that translates into the taste. Add in caramel, lots of citrus hops to the chocolate and coffee. The hops almost make me pucker at times. love how easy this is to drink, cant make out the 9.0 abv til it hits me.

Poured out of a bottle into a standard ale glass: Dense, impenetrable, pitch-black with a foamy mocha head that lasted a while (although not quite as long as some other reviewers have noted--but many of those had the advantage of drinking on-tap).
Strong notes of licorice and spice--but two of the myriad flavors that spike your palate. Overall, this is a knock-out beer, exploding with flavor, and pretty intense with its 9%+ alcohol content. Hard to imagine a beer gourmond not loving this beer unless you're not keen on stouts. Few rivals to this baby, a real delight.

T: no caramel just imperial grain and some chocolate and black coffee
M: awesome, creamy texture and greating carbonation with a medium lacing for a substantial stout.
