Appearance:
The beer itself comes closer to a really dark brown that borders on black. The foam is a coffee colored tan.

Smell:
Coffee and sweet dark chocolate dominates the nose.

Taste:
The main notes are coffee and dark chocolate with a bit of hops that tastes pretty nice. I get tiny bit of vanilla that along with the dark chocolate balances well against the strong coffee tastes.

Mouthfeel:
Barely any carbonation. Very full-bodied.

Overall:
A fairly decent Imperial Stout and one that I would probably pick up again.

22oz from Belmont Station.

A: Pours with a big foamy dark mocha head. So black it obscures the printing on my Bailey's tulip. Some good stains.

N: Lots of smoke, espresso, and oak. Strong enough to smell from a few feet away. Chocolate, tobacco and leather. Overtures of vanilla. Coffee brings an overt acidity. Dry earth. Worth savoring.

T: Starts with the hoppy bitterness. Lots of smoke and coffee which adds another element to the bitter side. Oak dries this out. There's not a ton of sweetness, but it is there. Like drinking a heavily roasted espresso.

M: Oily and heavy, though it doesn't coat the palate like some other RISes. Still it's not slouch. Alcohol is well-hidden.

O: A hoppy coffee forward stout that has a lot of layers and which I very much enjoy. I wish it had a bit more sweetness to prop up the coffee, but it's a minor complaint. Well done. Need to buy more next year.
