The beer comes in a black color with a hint of brown coming through the light with a light tan head.

The aroma has bittersweet chocolate that dominates. A sweet chocolate as well and roasted malt. A gentle alcohol in the back.

The flavor follows with a bittersweet chocolate. A mocha coffee, brown sugar, and creaminess. A lucscious mouthfeel with roasted malt, a bit of woody bitterness, with a big theme of bitter roast, smoke, almost ash notes.

I had this blind tasted with Great Lakes Blackout and this won by a reasonable margin. This beer fires well on all cylinders by being robust and having that big mouthfeel.

A killer brew and definitely one of the best easily attainable imperial stouts.

2006 vintage

a - poured a 1/2 finger thick light tan head into a snifter that was gone quickly. the body was dark black.
s - raisins and other dark fruits.
t - same as the aroma.
m - creamy and slick.
o - interesting to see how this has changed over the years. it's been in the back of a 40 degree fridge for years. developed some oxidation but still pleasant. the fruitiness compliments the RIS.
