Pours black with a 1’ head that falls to a lacing atop the ale and the side of the glass
Poured cold it smells like coco and chocolate
Taste is of roasted malt and fudge brownies, it is not harsh
Mouthfeel is smooth, 12% alcohol undetected at first but you can taste it as it warms up.
Overall this is a damn fine Imperial Stout, not overly hoppy, toasty, or sweet. Real solid.

Appearance is just fantastic. Pours nearly black with a finger and a half of tan head. Leaves nice sticky rings on the glass with every sip. Smell is sweet but delicate for an imperial especially considering its potency. Taste is rich and roasty with a slightly bitter finish. Feel is thick and rich. The 12% abv is apparent and yet fairly well hidden. Overall this is a fine example of the profile. It's a big beer that's not too complex and in my opinion is better enjoyed closer to room temperature.
