12-oz bottle into New Belgium globe

A - pitch black body under an enormous thick, foamy head of dark tan; awesome lace and great retention

S - tons of roast malt, coffee, dark chocolate, sweet caramel, booze

T - coffee, chocolate, booze, a bit nutty; bitterness kicks in for a pleasant balance, with plenty of malty sweetness in the finish

M - creamy full body, medium/high carbonation, slick, plenty of warmth from the alcohol

O - Excellent imperial stout. It's a classic for a reason.
