12 oz on draft at FM Smoke House in Irving

Poured with a good, thick tan to brown head over an opaque black body. Good lacing.

Not sure if it's just the temp being too cold, but very light on the nose. Some bitter bark, bakers chocolate, and fresh NW hops. A real smokiness comes thru as it warms.

Flavors come thru with burnt malt that just sticks on the palate throughout the swallow and finish (yes, I said swallow and finish in the same sentence). Leafy bitterness. Smokey malt. Tangy finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light for a 10%er, but good, IMO. Not too thick.

Interesting beer, and has plenty of flavor going on. Just not sure I'd seek it out again.

Pours out dark black and I cannot find any amber or brown hues anywhere along its edges. The head is thick foamy and dark tan color. It’s very inviting and almost makes me want to make a pillow out of the head.
Strong roasted malts, coffee, liquorish, vanilla, figs and cream are all mixed in its aroma.
The roasted malts are the first to hit your tongue, the bitterness follows, then the rest of the flavors come through. The mild bitter chocolates sweep through the side of your mouth, very mild coffee in its aftertaste but not much else- it could just be me.
It is a bit light on the mouth feel but falls in the medium mouthfeel category.
Overall, this is a great beer to have and its been fun sitting down in the cold just to be warmed up by the imperial stout.

So...nobody is going to write a real review of this, and the name format is wrong. To things that annoy me. Only slightly kidding :) Anyway, a growler from Premium Draught in Houston.

A: Pours a completely opaque black color. A two finger rocky tan head forms with excellent retention. Rings of lace are left behind.
S: Big roasted malt, cream and coffee, bakers chocolate. Toasted malts and baked bread. Some liquorish. Some leafy hops in the finish.
T: A big roasted malty flavor. Cream and coffee. Deep, dark, bakers chocolate flavors. Even some toffee and liquorish. A lingering, light bitterness. Partly from late finishing hops, and partly from the chocolate flavors.
M/D: This has a big full body. Viscous, but not overly inky and oily. Moderate carbonation. Smooth at the same time. A bit of warming heat. This is a big beer. Though a very nice sipper.

This is a great Imperial Stout. Very enjoyable and highly recommened if you are looking for a big stout.
