Extremely dark extremly thick and oily with an extremly dense and tall mocha head. looks exciting.
Aroma is of rich malt almost quite nearly burnt, super. Coffee and espresso comes through well too. Not picking up as far as oak.
Flavor is big and bold lots of robust roasted malts and I'm sure half are burnt which is a good thing. Plenty of espresso, deep and dark.
I also get bittersweet chocolate church pews and charcoal. I get a bit of hops towards the end and in the aftertaste.
Rich and smooth with some alcohol warming. I can see myself drinking this at the firepit up in the 'dacks.

shoutout to matttYCE for this one! thanks man!

A: pour is completely black, no hints of red or ruby whatsoever. Pour is highly viscous and pours about 1 solid worth of tan mocha head with enormous lacing. The head retention is phenomenal and remains about ½ fingers worth even after 1 minute of sitting. Carbonation is also pretty high and with a couple swirls, the head forms again.

S: big ass espresso is the main player here, but oak, dark fruits, toasted malt help balance this one out quite nicely. As it warms up, vanilla notes make themselves more present adding to the complexity and hops notes come out as well.

T: very big espresso right up front. Almost to the point of being too dominating. I also get huge chocolate notes, some molasses, smokiness and a slight hop finish. This is an extremely bold brew, and I am failing to pick up on any kind of sweet notes

M: definitely full bodied, high viscosity to the point of chewiness (not a bad thing at all for this brew). It leaves a bitter dark chocolate and espresso taste on the tongue.

O: The taste of this brew is extremely bold in flavor and wish there were a bit more sweetening characters to help balance this one out. If you like big robust espresso and dark chocolate then this is a perfect brew for you.

On tap at Mugs.

Super foamy pour, tan head erupts from the black body and clings to my glass. Strongly roasted, deep coffee aroma. Toffee and caramel too.

Deliciously viscous body brings a hearty roast to my tongue. Tons of dark coffee and minimally sweet caramel for a second. Goes right back to being dry as the drink wraps up.

For an easily accessible imperial stout, this is great!
