12 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with 3 fingers of caramel-colored head that dissolved away into a lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Very aromatic! Lots of roasted malt, imparting notes of coffee, dark chocolate, dark molasses, brown sugar, some oatmeal, vanilla, a touch of licorice and smoke, and a little oak.

Taste: Delicious! Strong flavors of roasted malt, some coffee, dark chocolate, dark molasses, brown sugar, some oatmeal, vanilla, a touch of licorice and a touch of well-balanced hops at the finish.

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smooth as hell, as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 10%, there is a slight presence of a very pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Wow! What a fantastic stout! Awesomely delicious, with some seriously strong flavors of roasted malt, some coffee, dark chocolate, dark molasses, brown sugar, some oatmeal, vanilla, a touch of licorice and a touch of well-balanced hops at the finish. Stout fans will LOVE this!

Impressively dark. Coffee, chocolate, some dark fruits. Full body, nicely balanced. Superb imperial stout!
