Spectacular! I've had a number of imperial stouts this winter that do not measure up to this. Pour's thick, black, viscious with a rich mocha head. It's obviously coated the sides of the glass and informs that the is not for the meek or mild mannered. The noses is all dark fruits and alcohol; raison's first, blending into cinnamon and vanilla, the alcohol is faint but warning, burnt toast around the edges. The flavor picks up all the best of heavy dark roast, creamy bready malts; blackened barely (x3), bitter wheat, bouyant cinnamon. The double headed griffen is a rightous crest as this is thick, powerful and unforgetable.
