Consumed at Stone World Bistro, Escondido CA, 05/21/08.
Very, very dark brown. Lots of active carbonation. Thin layer of tan foam sits atop the beer.
Aroma is dark and roasted and malty and delicious.
Slightly oily and chewy. Dark malts and strong chocolate flavors roll across the tongue. Coffee bitterness appears on the end accompanied by a bit of astringency. Lasting bitterness.
This is a very, very good beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours opaque black with cola edges. The big one and a half inch tan head remains as a cap on top that leaves thick curtains of lace.
The smell is of spent coffee grounds, dark chocolate, sweet vanilla and faint black licorice.
The taste is of dark chocolate, black coffee, vanilla, molasses and a hint of dark stone fruit.
The texture is heavy bodied with medium carbonation.
This is a very good example of a classic imperial stout. Big coffee and dark chocolate aroma and flavor. I've passed this one up dozens of times...I was wrong.
