Aroma is of deeply roasted malts, and some rich dark chocolate.
Pours as syrupy and black as the night sky. Very little head, suggesting low carbonation.
Mouthfeel is a little thinner than I had expected. Taste is of very roasted malts (perhaps even burnt) and very dark chocolate. Unlike many others in this style, there isn't much sweetness in this beer. Small bitterness found on the backend on the sides of the tongue with lingering roast.
This is an imperial stout for those who don't like the uber-malty, syrupy RIS's. Thinner, and more focused on roasted and dark chocolate notes, I found it went down very easily. Alcohol pretty much completely masked. Not bad at all.
