Served out of a three month old 12oz bottle into a snifter.
A- Dark, intimidating, imperial stout. Little to no light getting through. Super dark brown, if not black. A fairly aggressive pour produced a half-inch khaki head, which slowly dissipated into a nice lacing.
S- Coffee, chocolates, roasted malts. Noticeable aroma when diving in for a taste. Has my nasal hairs dancing.
T- A toffee flavored, smooth front-end, with a sharp, coffee-like bitterness on the back-end. Coats the whole mouth and the taste lingers until your next sip. Delicious.
M- Great mouthfeel for this beer. A little thickness compliments the taste, adds depth and shows how full bodied this beer is. Exactly what you would expect from a 9.5%er...
O- Definitely a widely available go-to imperial stout. Love the Great Divide bottle as well. Suggests food pairings, lists the IBUs, has a clear bottling date, nice texture, and a spot on description of what you're getting yourself into. Gave this beer 4.5's all around to express how well balanced it is. Won't guarantee this will be your favorite imp. stout ever, but I can say you will not be disappointed.

A - pours a beautiful, thick black with nice dark tan head of a little over a finger. Has that nice tan lace all the way down.
S - roasty, chocolatey, hints of coffee. This has a good, deep nose to it.
T - great bitterness to it. Great espresso and chocolates. Deep flavors. Some roastiness in the back end. Caramel notes come through at end as well. So good.
M - full body and then some. This is thick and savory. Leaves you smacking your lips or more. This is exactly hoe a stout should feel.
O - not disappointed. Only knock would be its slight booziness... But it's an imperial, so what do you expect, right? Great imp stout.
