Sampled at the Farmers Cabinet in Philly. Off nitro this beer is untouchable. Massive two finger head blends slowly and beautifully. I've had it from a standard tap and a bottle but nitro is a whole other experience. Body is silky smooth and creamy. I've encountered lots of beer and very few can be considered perfect; this is one that can. A+

This beer blows me away. Pours a dark black with a light brown foamy head.
Super toasty coffee aroma with a little chocolate . Maybe even. Hint of vanilla or malt.
Mouthfeel on this beer is fantastic, super smooth and full bodied. It's delicious even cold. Hides the alcohol very well with a mild bitterness . I wish this is what all imperial stouts tasted like. Just a comforting beer you want to keep drinking.
