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

Pours black with a 3/4 inch brown head.

Smell is of dark chocolate, coffee and faint dark fruit.

Taste follows the smell with dark chocolate, coffee and a hint of vanilla.

Mouthfeel is very thick. Almost chalky with low carbonation.

A delicious imperial stout.
