A - Very dark and poured with a fairly large head. Nothing is really visible through the beer. Head dissipates very quickly.

S - Very strong (and delicious) smell at first, but dissipates pretty quickly. Sweet, with strong smell of chocolate and hints of coffee.

T - Sweet when it first touches the tongue. Light carbonation and light alcohol taste. Very smooth, with good balance of flavors. Coffee and bitter aftertaste.

M - Very very thick and heavy. Not much carbonation or alcohol taste, especially for a 9%.

O - Best stout I have had. I like the initial sweetness, and the smell was very delicious when I first poured, and, with the thick head, it made my mouth water. The bitter aftertaste lingers for a bit, but it is not that strong. The head and smell dissipate quickly. Still, an enjoyable beer.

A - Pours a motor oil black with a two-finger foamy tan head.

S - Sweet roasted malts, coffee, and dark chocolate. Also some faint dark fruits.

T - Coffee is front and center followed by the roasted malts. Finish with a nice amount of bitter dark chocolate.

M - Full body wit medium carbonation. Creamy mouthfeel with a slight alcohol burn.

O - One of the best imperial stouts out there. A true American classic.
