On-tap at Ormsby's in the ATL.
Very nearly black with a quickly dissipating head, minuscule lacing. Wonderfully dark, dense and gentle, not blatantly upfront about any of its 11%. The wood, vanilla and coffee are all here, well-balanced and mutually coalesced. Yes, the appearance and mouthfeel may be somewhat lacking - both are, ultimately, perfectly reasonable, just spartan and slack - but the taste makes this a non-issue. It is well-rounded, extremely drinkable and elegantly indicative of its various components. An almost ideal Imperial Stout.

Serving type: on-tap
