I love stouts. I acquired this in a temp-control bottle in Monterey, CA and didn't drink it until I reached Eugene, OR, so that may have affected it's flavor. I'll have to try it on tap sometime. It was one of three stouts in my "I'm Bored Tonight Stout-Off" (the other two were Deschutes Obsidian and Bell's Expedition - I know - it should be The Abyss, but it's hard to come by, so Obsidian had to do.)
This poured a deep dark black-brown color with a thick brownish bubbly head. It has a great complex aroma of chocolate and coffee and caramel tones. Taste was a bit bitter compared to the aroma and you can tell it's a higher ABV Imperial - there's a bit of a pungent alcohol kick on the front of it. But the lingering tastes and aftertastes of this complex, full bodied stout are sweet and delicious, keeping you coming back for more of it. A great stout.
