look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours dark, deep brown, almost black with a thin sandlewood colored head. Has a very deep, sweet smell of burnt malted grains and molasses with a hint of grapes and spices. The mouth feel is quite sticky from the sugars and very warm. The taste follows the smell and very pleasant with sweet, sugary, burnt grains and caramel and surprising peppery, spicey aftertaste. This is a fantastic beer, but probably a little too heavy for an everyday beer.

Thick chocolatey malt nose with some alcohol present. Pours exactly like IRS should, black with tan head that doesn't last long - pretty good lacing going. Taste like dark chocolate with a bit of roastiness. Not a sweet beer at all so there must be a good amount of bittering hops but no aroma hops. It finishes really smooth with a slight alcohol presence.

One of the best year round imperial stouts you can get.
