A: Pours black with a persistent sticky, dark brown head made of cream, mousse-like bubbles.
S: Strong roast aroma and a good amount of coffee with a depth dark roasted grain aromas. Prunes and moderate citrus hops with the fresh hopped grassy note. There is some licorice and a moderate alcohol aroma.
T:Again lots of roast with some molasses and licorice. Firm hops bitterness with a good bit of roast bitterness and a moderately-light citrus hops flavor. There is a light malt sweetness but the balance is fairly bitter with a medium dry finish.
M: full bodied with moderate carbonation.
O: A thick, rich imperial stout that has a huge amount of flavor and complexity. I'm usually unhappy with licorice and molasses in beers because they usually seem to dominate but here there a part of the rich tapestry of flavors

Pours out a jet black body with a head that looks like chocolate mousse. I get a lot of chocolate in the aroma, along with citrus hops. Taste is rather sweet, and full of your typical stout flavors of coffee, chocolate, and roasty bitterness. Aftertaste of resinous hops and ash. Booze heat in the finish. Mouthfeel is full and creamy, and gives a tingling carbonation. Overall, this is a solid imperial stout, but it doesn't do very much to wow.
