Bottle courtesy of korguy123, shared with a buddy. Poured into a snifter, cheers dude!
Pours a truly midnight black, with a dark brown head and red highlights. Gorgeous, I know this is gonna crush me. Finger or so of head settles to an extremely thin layer with a collar. Aroma is of vanilla, molasses, roasted maltiness and a whiff of booze. Taste is fairly similar, leading with some roasty and boozy mouth and becomes an intricate mix of chocolate, molasses, a touch of coffee and alcohol that glides slickly over the tongue. Maybe a touch of dark fruits in the finish here, ends slightly dry also. This mouthfeel is unreal, like velvet on the tongue. Drinkability is quite high as well, alcohol is not completely hidden but is intricately woven amongst the other elements of this beer. An excellent beer, truly.

A-pours a used oil med-thin head depending on the aggressiveness
S-Ample dark malts with a mild black coffee/soft licorice
T-Definitive strong black coffee flavor with a intermediate yet complementing mix of dark fruits (raisins, dates(soft),fig, and black cherry) finish is a awesomely enjoyable mix with a soft tail. The ABV as stated before is not noticeable.
M-In between a milky and silky smooth with a great tacky end-all. Mild to light carbonation.
O-A delicious Imperial stout that does not disappoint and only grow's with a little warmth, almost a cask flavor at room temp. Defiantly recommended.

Pours a dark jet black. No head, just the thinnest tan ring around the edge. No lacing.
Smells like booze. Minimal other aromas, maybe a hint of roasted malt and sweetness.
Taste is super thin, watery, mild sweetness, molasses and alcohol. Nothing lingers. Really disappointing. As it warms it get bigger and has some chocolate and coffee flavors, but still unusually thin and watery.
Thin mouthfeel. Very watery, alcohol is prevalent but not something that gets in the way.
Big let down. Maybe the most watery stout ever. Not much flavor either. I don't get what went wrong here. I sipped it, tasted little. Let it warm to room temp and still got a watery, boozy miss that only got a hair more flavor and body...
