I came across a 7oz bottle of this in Brookline, NH and it was the last one on the shelf. I was not too psyched that it was such a small bottle, but I bought it because I have never seen it before. I poured it into a small glass and it looked like a thick coca cola with a light brown head. The scent is overwhelmed with malts, molasses, and coffee notes. The flavor reflects the aroma with an emphasis on sweet molasses, chocolate, and hop bitterness. There is also a bit of a light smokey flavor. At 11% ABV, the alcohol makes its self known. The mouthfeel is a full body, creamy texture. I would never want to session this beer, but if you have never tried it and like stouts, definitely buy this. Very good RIS by Rogue and if I find this again, I would love another one. Would go well with a chocolaty dessert!

The bottle is different than the pictured in this review. I'm not tech savoy so f that upload shit.
Appearance: Dark as night with a good two finger head that dissipated slowly.
Smell: It smells of chocolate and something else I cant yet put my unexperienced palate on.
Taste: I'm getting a chocolate taste but a strong almost overwhelming and lasting bitterness that I haven't gotten with other imperial stouts.
Mouth feel: It is thick and and very nice mouth feel.
Overall: I'm not a great fan of this beer but I like the Rogue brand and would not be turned away from their brews. Thats why we have Baskin Robins and 32 flavors my friends, not everyone is going to love everything, overall not bad.
