Poured into a snifter.

A: Black with a half-finger, tan, creamy head that lasted a minute. Okay lacing.

S: Coffee. Chocolate. Roasted malt.

T: Moderate sweetness and moderate bitterness. Coffee and chocolate. Oats. Roasted malt.

M: Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Smooth.

O: Solid stout. The taste is complex. The head was a bit disappointing.

A-Pours a pitch black like most stouts. A nice, half finger toffe colored head that dissipates relatively quickly. Lacing coats the entire side of the glass and forms a minimal latticework as you drink more.

S-Strong, bold coffee and milk chocolate. Very distinguishable

T-Bold coffee, but not too in your face. Notes of milky chocolate and a touch of a nutty taste, perhaps almonds. Sweet aftertaste

MF-Very,very smooth and feels like 1% milk

O-The absolute best beer I've ever had. The balance is perfect as well as the mouthfeel and subtle smells. This beer kicks ass

This is perhaps the best Imperial Stout brewed in the USA, since production is up this year the overall quality has diminished slightly but cellar it for a while and drink it about 50°+, hasn't been beaten yet IMHO. Available in 4 packs or on draft.
