Served on-tap in an 8 oz goblet. Not much head, but it has an incredibly deep dark brown-black color that no light can penetrate. Nice mild to moderate lacing. The aroma is out of this world, it reach up through your sinuses and grabs your brain by the hippocampus--coffee, molasses, a bit of plums. The flavor is deep, dark, and complex--coffee, chocolate, molasses, grapefruit, and a smokey sweetness that hovers on your palate. Mouthfeel is very thick and chewy, amazing. This is an outstanding imperial stout. My previous gold standard was Old Rasputin, but this one, though different, is just as magnificent!

On tap @ Churchill's "Night of the Yeti" during SDBW. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours black with few bubbles around the rim and no lace.

N: Sweetish whiskey booze is evident. Like a chocolate brownie soaked in whiskey.

T: Mildly sweet, vanilla present with some oaky notes and dark chocolate, grainy/malty.

M: Full body and light carbonation. Slick and oily roasted finish.

O: Aside from the low carbonation, this was very enjoyable.
