Nice sweet caramel smell. Good mouth feel. Taste similar to dragons milk but not as complex.

Really nice beer, good balance of flavor, bitter and sweet. Taste and smell are a little dominated by the alcohol.

Beautifully dark opaque black. Solid stout flavor, not too boozey with a slight bitter finish that lingers. Fantastic mouth feel

355ml bottle from Good Spirits Co, Glasgow:
This one was definitely a very nice imperial stout from North Coast but at the same time it wasn't one that managed to blow me away or indeed to live up to the heights of some of the other American brewed imperial stouts that I've tried over the last few months. The beer was highly drinkable despite the strength, although some alcohol was noticeable throughout; an enjoyable beer but just not my favourite of the style.
