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.

At the Draughthouse's 2013 anniversary party, they called this "512 Imperial Stout 5th Anniversary." Served on-draught into a 5 oz sampler glass. Reviewed from notes.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a 1.5 finger wide head of tan colour. Good cream and thickness. Poor (<20 second) retention. Uneven lacing sticks to the sides of the glass.

Body colour is a predictable opaque black. No floating yeast particles/sediment is visible.

Not a unique or special appearance for an imperial stout, but there are no overt flaws. It's about what you'd expect given the style, and I think it looks pretty good.

Sm: Chocolate malt, dark malts, vanilla. Hints of subtle bourbon. No hop profile, alcohol, or yeast character is detectable. A hint of roast. I'm not picking up any coffee or true milk chocolate. It's an appealing aroma, if a subdued one. Light in strength. I'm looking forward to trying it.

T/Mf: Has some nice milk chocolate notes; very soft. Smooth and wet. Good thickness and body. It's not syrupy like many bad imperial stouts. Has a good presence on the palate. Well-carbonated.

No hop profile, yeast character, or alcohol comes through.

Dark malts. Chocolate malt. Cream. Sadly, it's a been lacking in terms of roast. It's a pretty simple build for an imperial stout, but it does have some limited subtlety, and the buried vanilla notes are a nice touch. I do like it, but you have to bring far more to the table to compete with the greats in this style. It's lacking a unique or special element. Everything this beer does, another beer in the style does better.

Dr: A likable plain ole imperial stout with no frills. Sort of the RyanAir of imperial stouts, if you will. I'd get it again and it's quite drinkable, but it just can't compete with the world-class beers in the style. It's one of the better Texan beers I've had in my short time here. I might recommend it to friends. Hides its ABV well. Give it a go if you chance across it.
