This is my first review.
In the glass, it looks midnight black with very very little head.
It smelled to me of dark caramel and dark soy sauce so I thought it would be dense upon taste.
There is slightly denser than the average stout but there is no heavy feeling when you drink it.
Upon drinking it, I could immediately feel the heat from the alcohol. Outside of the stout flavors I expected, I also tasted tobacco and pepper. To me the finish was almost bourbon like
with a lingering bitterness.
It's a very pronounced beer and the flavors stay with you well after you're done.
Serving type: on-tap

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.
