A: Pours black, dark brown with a massive roasted brown head. This is a great looking beer.
S: Big time dark roasted coffee aromas. Other standard imperial stout descriptors, such as chocolate and roasted malts also present. But the biggest characteristic on this one is the coffee. Smells deliciously fresh brewed.
T/M: The coffee, chocolate, and roasted malts are all there. Slight chewiness to the mouthfeel but overall this is a very smooth and well-balanced imperial stout. It doesn't try to go overboard, which I appreciate. Bitterness is a little distracting on the finish, but overall this is an excellent one.
D: Very smooth for such an intense beer. If it wasn't $10 a bottle, then I'd rank this higher

11.5oz bottle poured into a snifter. 6 and 1 notched on the label of this twist off bottle.
A: Pours a very dark brown appearing pitch black in the glass. A mild khaki tan head sits on top, dissipating in a couple minutes.
S: Initially there is a nice dose of coffee that blends very well with a roasted malt quality. Dark fruit qualities come out more as it warms along with a touch of smokiness.
T: A beer with flavor that builds on you. At first I get a slightly bitter coffee, then a blend of dark fruit comes through. The aftertaste lingers with a great roastiness for a solid 2 minutes after each sip.
M: Very smooth beer. Creamy mouthfeel that slides like velvet over your tongue. Doesn't even seem like an alcoholic beverage. Remarkable.
Overall I am stunned with the complexity yet harmony of this beer. Coffee is just enough to add without overwhelming, hops compliment the coffee and the roastiness just works period.
