A- After coming to the proper temp, poured this into a tulip glass and received an impressive head that left great lacing and retained a nice khaki colored coating.

S- Really nice stout appropriate smell. Coffee is pronounced but not overpowering.

T- The taste is in keeping with the smell, very pleasant chocolate and coffee.

M- Sticky is the operative word, full mouthfeel.

O- This is an upper tier imperial stout. I am certainly interested in their oak aged stout etc.

12oz. bottle poured into imperial pint glass.

A: Black. Absolutely black. No color. No highlights around the edges. No light peering through during the iPhone flashlight test. A liquid black hole with a creamy crown the shade of raw sugar. Unreal amounts of burnt caramel colored lacing down the glass. Everything I want to see in a RIS.

S: Slightly bitter. Dark roasted malts, pure cocoa powder, heavy molasses, light hints of dark roasted coffee. An unexpected whiff of citrus hop presence underneath adds a bit of a unique and pleasant touch.

T: The taste follows suit near perfectly with the nose, except that everything is more powerful on the tongue than it was in the nose. Not super complex, but it doesn't need to be. With a flavor profile this decadent and well-executed, who needs something over-the-top? Not me.

M: Full-bodied, creamy, decadent, viscous, all without being too overwhelming. This is a slow-drinker, but definitely still goes down easy.

O: I see this around A LOT and I've recently been trying to stop myself from IPA binging, so I decided to grab something different that seems to be a crowd favorite. Two sips in, I understand the praise. This is one serious stout! It's nothing overly complex, but when you execute flavors THIS well, who needs off-the-wall recipes? I tip my hat to the folks at Great Divide, for they've hit it out of the park with this imperial stout.
