Pours a pitch black body with a one finger creamy mocha colored head. Looks amazing.

My goodness, I smell vanilla beans, milk chocolate, coffee, nothing but good sweetness to it. Slight caramel tone to it.

Vanilla, chocolate milk flavors followed by some coffee and strong bitterness on the tongue. Slight alcohol burn in the aftertaste, which is dry and bready.

Feels creamy, silky and smooth. Nice carbonation.

An amazing imperial stout from DDC. The bottle says bottled on January 2013, so it's only about half a year old. Tastes nice - though I'm hoping to age a few bottles for a few years and see how it improves, hopefully with the alcohol burn gone. Great beer.

Poured into a snifter

A: Very, very dark brown. Small amber head that quickly retreats to a fine rim. Mildly viscous and leaves a slight amber layer on the side of the glass. Not much when it comes to lacing.

S: Not very fragrant. Bitter coffee, earthy, dusty. Aroma increases as it opens.

T: Dark malts, coffee, slight bitter, hops. Very strong taste. Not much of a lingering palette.

M: Bold-bodied beer. High Carbonation. Smooth.

O: A great stout that has an excellent balance of coffee and traditional ingredients. The booze was hide very well.
