A: black. thick tan head with persistent lacing long after it's gone.

S: pungent bittersweet, chocolate, slightly earthy or vegetable -- though not unpleasantly so.

T: dark chocolate, bitter, strong hints of smoke every now and again.

M: full, thick, milky, lingers

O: delicious, not overly ambitious, a truly solid beer and one that I'll be on the look out for next time I'm in the mood for a stout.

A: Dark black just as expected with a creamy brown head. Limited lacing.

S: Coffee with hints of dark fruit, sweet malty notes and a hint of hops.

T: caramel malts with a hint of chocolate a little bit of a butter taste. Plenty of coffee and some hops to balance it out.

O: impressive imperial stout. Strong flavors with lots of alcohol.

Poured from a 12oz bottle. Aggressive pour gives a beautiful creamy head. Smell: Roasty, chocolate, coffee, malt. Not very boozy smelling but it's there. Taste: You can taste it before it even touches your mouth. Much like you'd expect from the smell. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate up front. The booze comes in towards the end. The alcohol burn left behind is just right. It's rated up there with one of my favorite stouts.
