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.

Another stout for the season. I am always looking for the BEST stout. I did enjoy this one. Nothing in terms of coffee or bourbon which seems to be the latest in all stouts today.
But this has a very bitter chocolate taste. Something like a bakers chocolate
I am glad I tried this... but

Beautiful black brew, topped with a thick brown head. Good retention and lacing.

Solid roasted barley aroma with a bit of dark overripe fruit. Just a hint of chocolate.

Flavor matches the aroma, with the chocolate slightly more prominent. Very roasty. Slightly sweet. Very grainy.

Sticky full feel, long retention, just slightly hot.

Excellent imperial stout, straight forward and delicious.
