I know this beer gets a lot of love around here, but it doesnt do it for me.

It looks like a RIS should. Nice and black, not much head.

It smells good, the usual dark fruits, coffee, roast malt, booze.

The taste however was far too sweet for my liking. The overall flavor is good, but I couldnt take the sweetness and thick body as a result of that residual sugar. I like imperial stouts in general, but this didnt do it for me.

Mouth feel was thick, not in a good way. I like thick beers (KBS, BCBS, BA9k ect), but this was too much for me. I think it is because the sugar seems to create the thickness in this beer as opposed to a ton of malt like some others.

Overall I actually hate to say I didnt really like this. I know a ton of people love it and Town Hall nails their beers consistently, but this one isnt for me. That said, I suggest you try it, because I am in the minority with this opinion, and odds would say that you'll love it!
