When opening the bottle I was surprised to see that the bottle was a twist off. After prying off the twist off, I put my nose at the top of the bottles and took in a nice big whiff. What returned was a wonderful mixture of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. There is a huge bitter chocolate/dark chocolate nose on this. This would go superbly with double chocolate cake or something similar. The beer is poured almost pitch black, but there is a slight ruby tint. A fluffy tan head rests upon the top of the beer. The nose after pouring the beer is slightly different: there is a bit more of sweetness to the chocolate notes.
Taking a sip of this beer gives huge chocolate flavours with a nice balance from coffee. There is a slight bit of alcohol coming through as well. At the end of the beer there is a nice bitter coffee flavour to round out the beer. The body is much more thin than I expected, but it's still tasty. I like my imperial stouts to be incredibly thick. I think there is a bit too much carbonation as well. The flavours are well rounded in the beer, but I want much more bold flavours.
The more the beer warms up the better the beer tastes. I just wish there was a bit more body or less carbonation.
