A - Black but not thick, thin head that dissipates quickly leaving a ring around the glass

S - Chocolate and roasty malts to begin with, finishing with coffee and oats

T - starts with coffee and roast malts, touch of smoke and ending with dark chocolate with a touch of sweetness

M- Great body, slight carbonation. Finishes medium sweet

A: deep brown with just a hint of garnet at the edges; 1 finger light brown head that receded quickly to a thin collar; light lacing;

S: coffee and chocolate;

T: coffee really picks up mid-palate with a little brandy and vanilla as well; flavor is pretty consistent through the finish; mild bitterness at the end;

M: full bodied; coats the inside of your mouth; creamy carbonation;

O: a lot going on here and it's all really good;

Bottled 9/2/2014 - snifter.

Pours black, opaque with thin off white head. Smell of booze, brown sugar and faint coffee. Taste is bitter (in a good way) chocolate, coffee and malty goodness. Mouth feel is full with moderate carbonation. For sure, one of the better imperial stouts.
