Draft. Pours dark black with creamy brown head. Think. Lingers. Aromas of roasted malts and good Italian coffee. Taste good strong espresso coffee with chocolate, cinnamon and vanilla. Something bitter buried deep. Best taste is the strong espresso. Heavy stout. No carbonation. Strong espresso and malt aftertaste. Smooth though. Very drinkable. Like it as much or better than Evil Twin Donut Break. Very good imperial stout.

Fantastic flavor from start top finish. I felt this particular batch was slightly under carbonated as it produced very little head when poured.

Poured a dark brown, almost black body with one finger tan head that dies quick and leaves little lace.
Aroma is light coffee and light roasted malts with some wood and slight booze, a little bit of chocolate and vanilla as well.
Smooth body, light for a stout, roasted coffee malts are minimal and basically kept in background for balance.
A more vanilla, lactic java-esque sweetness along with some chocolate and caramel (slight caramel) and the bourbon notes don't add heat but keep it woody and smooth.
Pretty good sweet/mild stout that is worth trying.
