A - Pours a dark, engine oil black with a toffee colored head the quickly dies off to leave a a nice toffee colored lacing, sticky with legs as it clings to the glass.
A - Dark roasted chocolate/cocoa, black anise, light oak, and light smoke.
T - Dark roasted chocolate, coffee, some oak character, light smokey char, anise/licorice, and light sweetness that finishes with a char/dark chocolate roast bitterness.
M - Thick, full bodied, viscous, velvety on the tongue, sticky on the lips.
O - A very well brewed stout and every bit as worthy.

$4.00 single from Abe's.
Body is a total black hole. Not a highlight to be seen. Three fingers of dark tan dense foam.
Heavy chocolate aroma. Licorice and alcohol in the background. Some dark fruits.
Taste features chocolate up front. A smoky note. Dark fruits. Alcohol in nose not noticeable in the taste.
Mouthfeel is medium plus, a bit thin for an imperial stout.
There is a lack of depth throughout this beer. There is not anything really wrong, but everything seems to come up just a bit short.
Serving type: bottle
