A - This brew is one of the best looking imperial stouts I've ever seen. It pours obsidian black with a deep, dark 2-finger chocolate head. After gradually falling into the beer, a thin and pleasant dark tan head is left, leaving solid lacing in it's wake.
S - A sharp bitterness hits you first, a mix of hops, dark bittersweet chocolate and espresso.
T - Mildly sweet chocolate flavors dominate before being taken over by bitter expresso and deep bittersweet chocolate notes.
M - Extremely smooth and silkly at first with quite a dry finish.
O - This is the epitome of the style. It stands out as an amazing example of a great beer that is great simply because it is perfectly to style. If you ever get the chance to dry this do not pass it up!
