A - Pours as black as a witches soul with a dark frappa head that holds very well as it clings to the glass. A dark espresso ring forms with lots of dark lacing.
S - Smells like a glass of crushed whoppers and the strongest chocolate milk in existence, very bready, vanilla, full on leather, the most leather I've ever smelled in a beer. Earthy, doughy yeast, maraschino cherry juice, chocolate cake batter.
T - Chocolate cake batter, undercooked fudge brownies, charred cherries, roasted nuts(covered in chocolate of course), very yeasty, coffee comes through on the back end with some rounding bitterness. Finishes is dry with some acidity mixed in.
M - Thick and viscous to the max, full creamy body, a flood of silk, dry roasted finish.
This is one of the best Imperial Stouts I've had the opportunity to drink. Every time I drink, I like it better. Its a bold yeasty chocolate bomb in your face. There are so many layers to this beer. Do not pass this up!

This beer is so smooth and silky, it is almost unbelievable it is widely available.
Pours a black beer. Very little foam forms, almost typical of imperial stouts. Smells like roasts, chocolate, coffee. No trace of alcohol. Taste is "silky smooth" to quote the Zohan. Mouthfeel is amazing. This beer feels like chocolate milk. Great consistency. Not heady.
