Poured a thick black mass of tar leaving little to no head but plenty of residue along the sides.
Heavy -but not too strong- malt smell followed by espresso and chocolate.
Sweet and dark chocolates, coffee with hints of nuts. A warming alcohol presence made sure to remid me of the big 10 abv but wasn't to heavy, balanced fantasticly.
Slick oily mouthfeel. Heavy hitting, thick and chewy. This is a great Imperial just perfect for a cold winter evening playing chess or reading a book.

Got this on tap at the stone brewpub in the San Diego airport since I didn't have time to make it out to the brewery during my trip. Had it for breakfast with the duck confit eggs. Practically perfect stout for me. Licorice aroma, jet black color, nice crisp mouthfeel. Just a great clean stout. Will definitely look for it again.
