I'm not sure what to classify this beer as, but Imperial Stout is most definitely wrong. It's closer to a super-sweet scotch ale, by far.
Pours a slightly translucent amber so dark as to be nearly brown. Light shining through the sides comes through as merely slightly lighter. Certainly not a black beer by any measure.
No head on the pour, extremely thin white ring forms, no lacing. Smells of sherry, taffy, and candied sugars, with a hint of saltwater. Taste is of conflicting sweetnesses, almost no hops apparent. Aftertaste is slightly sickly-sweet, sticky, and unbalanced.
I'm not sure I'll make it through the 22oz, to be honest. And I've finished some pretty awful beers.
Again, this is certainly not a stout by any measure, and I don't just mean in termsof quality. I'm not sure where the style label came from.

Food Pairing - Trailmix bar - almonds, peanuts, dried fruit, caramel etc. Really really good pairing here. I suspect the same would be true of any of these ingredients on their own!
A - Dark, reddish brown, nearly opaque. Light fizzy head, light lacing.
S - Oats and fruity qualities, definitely a dense sweetness that's enticing.
T - Rich! Some alcohol right up front, but gives way quickly to more interesting figs, dried cherries, fresh raspberry tartness, oats and molasses. Coppery caramel, saltwatter taffy, almonds. Finishes quite creamy.
M - Really smooth, the alcohol and creamyness isn't overpowering and goes down easy! Not dry, not thin, just right.
O - This beer really grew on me the more I progressed through the bottle - for maximum flavor, don't drink this straight out of the fridge! Let it warm up just a little. Great beer here at a great price, awesome for those looking to expand their beer horizons or anyone keen to enjoy a rich, intensely flavorful and fun beer.

Consumed in a pint glass.
Appearance: black with a thin yet firm head
Smell: milk chocolate, flowery from the hops
Taste/Mouthfeel: thick, chocolate, sweet beginning, milk chocolate in the middle finish was a spicy hop bite that lingered
Started out like a porter but finished up a stout. Strong from the alcohol but very drinkable.

Nice looking beer. Had it on tap at a new restaurant in the area, Hop Jacks. Decent head, left phenomenal lace. The aroma was average and the taste was far from complex. Definitely more on the sweet side and very low bitterness. Good mouthfeel but not much of an aftertaste. Overall not a bad stout, won't be my go-to stout but I could "session" these on occasion.

A-- Black-brown. Clear? Hazy? Would need some kind of laser to tell. Thick, lasting cream-colored head, some lacing.
S-- Sweet caramelly chocalate (a little stuffed up, that's the best I can do.)
T-- Lightly sweet, roasted nuts. A little bit of brightness coming through. get the whiskey barrel in the finish
M-- medium-to-full-bodied, creamy
O-- Nice, not overly sweet in my opinion, drinkable. Not overly malty for a strong ale. Balanced and not one-note. Wouldn't drink this all the time, but it's a pleasant 22oz attitude adjustment.
