look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Poured from a glass into a snifter

Appearance: Pitch black with minimal tan head that quickly fades. Some lacing.

Smell: Dominant scents are coffee and bitter chocolate. Roasty malt, caramel, and vanilla also come through. Chocolate becomes more intense as the beer warms up.

Taste: Intense chocolate and coffee up front. Bitter and roasty flavors come through. I get a subtle smokey flavor on the finish.

Mouthfeel: Thick and viscous, but still smooth with light carbonation.

Overall: This a a great imperial stout. It is well balanced and all the flavors compliment each other. I buy this beer every year and I am never disappointed.
