look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: pours a nice solid black color, almost no brown even along the edges. a huge foamy brown head. pretty strong retention and a strong lacing. dark and completely opaque. small brown viscosity left behind but not quite what the name suggests.

Smell: brown sugar and a molasses to maple syrup. chocolate and some roastiness. slight burnt malts. dark fruit.

Taste: opens up with some syrup to molasses. chocolate and roasted malts come in. just slight burnt quality to it and a little bit of associated bitterness. dark fruits come through towards the end with some dark almost metallic qualities.

Mouthfeel: chewy and heavy. leaves a pretty nice coating on your mouth. some light bitterness to it.

Overall: a very nice imperial stout. nice balance between sweet syrupy adjuncts and a good strong and bitter burnt quality. certainly something I will go for again and something I may check out with some age on.
