Pours out pretty dark with not much head even with an aggressive pour. Thinnest caramel colored head floated on the top. Not much lacing. Smell is quite good with roasted malts, caramel, and some chocolate. Taste follows that suit with a subtle coffee bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel isn't quite what I expect from an imperial stout but it isn't terrible. Just a bit thinner than I like. Overall a pretty solid imperial from a hometown brewery. Makes an outstanding base for the BA Siberian Night as well.

A: Pours an opaque but clear jet black in color with light to moderate amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass and some very faint dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a half finger tall dense tan head that reduces to a large patch of thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate to strong aromas of very heavily roasted, almost burnt malts. Light notes of chocolate and coffee.
T: Upfront there is a strong flavor of very heavily roasted malts with some moderate amounts of burnt malts. There are light to moderate flavors of dark bittersweet chocolate and freshly roasted coffee. Light to moderate amounts of lingering bitterness.
M: Full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Smooth with light amounts of dryness in the finish.
O: Very enjoyable and easy to drink, though this is much more of a sipping beer than one that you would drink more quickly. Alcohol is well hidden and this is a really nice substitute for dessert.
