12 oz bottle poured into a snifter/tulip hybrid. Sold in four packs for about 12 bucks.
Appearance- Black. Absolutely black. A hard pour produces a minimal head which is a light leather color and fades quickly to a dark tan ring. Nothing special but par for the style.
Smell- Chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and woody tones make for an inviting aroma.
Taste- Wonderful. Super chocolaty- deep and sweet. Molasses, caramel, and some French roast coffee notes play a supportive role.
Mouthfeel- Creamy and rich. Mild carbonation leads to a silky texture.
Overall- One of my favorite imperial stouts. If this were a limited, brewery-only release, it would be rated on par with Darkness, Dark lord, and Hunahpu's. As it is, I'll gladly let this one glide relatively under the radar which allows me to drink this readily. Absolutely delicious and a total treat whenever it's cracked open. Highly recommended.
