Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Agressive pour yielded little to no head, almost as if there is no carbonation in this beer. After swirling i developed a small half finger mocha colored head that dissapated quickly. Very dark brown, almost black and opaque.
Smell: Smells of burnt chocolate, dark chocolate, espresso and caramel. I also get a hint of toasted marshmallow on the back end of the aromas.
Taste: Booze is very present, but in a good way as this beer is meant to be drank rather slowly. Tastes like espresso mixed with some dark chocolate and a touch of butterscotch. Not totally knocking me off my feet, but interesting and balanced.
Mouthfeel: very little carbonation to the eye is present, but on the mouthfeel, im getting a lot of carbonation and prickly sensations on my toungue.
Drinkability: this is definately an occaision beer for me. I wouldnt session this beer ever, but im glad I tried it and I believe its my first imperial stout. Its a good way to kick things off for me, but I would drink 1 and 1 only a night. I would try again, but I would only drink 1 at a time.
After letting it sit for about 20 minutes and a couple of sips here and there, the second half of this is simply amazing!
The alcohol burned down a lot, the taste is much smoother with less of the burnt espresso taste and more of a mocha cappicinno taste. I get a little bit of cinnimon and some faint oatmeal flavors now.
