look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A-Deep, dark black/brown with a medium, frothy head that slowly reduces to a thin cap and leaves thick lacing.

S-Dark chocolate, roasted malt, freshly ground espresso beans and a touch of brown sugar.

T-Rather strong bitter roasted malt with mellowing notes of dark chocolate and espresso. Earthy hop bite in the finish.

M-Medium body with nice lingering flavour and lingering bitterness.

D-A very approachable, easy to drink and solid RIS. I can see why this won a GABF medal....it does just about everything right and very little wrong. A quality, true to style brew for sure.

Serving type: on-tap

3.9/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

64oz Growler was included in a recent trade...poured quickly into a snifter.

Looks pretty damn good initially when poured into my glass. Nice 2 finger brown head above a dark brown body with ruby edging. Not the typical black hole as with more serious Imperial Stouts. Head fades quickly leaving just an outer ring of tan/brown.

I don't get a lot of aroma from this...but do get a bit of smoke, maybe a bit of espresso and chocolate, plus a slight fruity ester. Not a lot of hop or roast to speak of.

I let this warm a bit before tasting...First impression was that there's not a lot of roast in the flavor either. More of a chocolate, fig, raisin, caramel kind of beer. This reminds me more of a Porter than Imperial Stout. The hop bitterness is very well balanced with the chocolate, especially in the finish. The alcohol is well hidden, but appears right at the very end in a good way. I really enjoy this, but again thinking Porter as I drink it.

Light to medium body, carbs a bit low but it was from a growler, and the finish of this beer makes me want to keep drinking it...real nice bitter chocolate/alcohol/coffee mix that works well.

Thinking I would drink this one again if I saw it on the shelf...but can't give it a high score as an Imperial Stout, but possibly as an Imperial Porter? I would be real interested in trying the barrel aged version..think the bourbon would play nice with the chocolate in this one.
