Split this with my man Garchooga during his recent visit.
A- Pitch black, viscous, and heavy as hell. No light penetrates this one. 2 finger chocolatey head. Very Immense looking
S- Just incredible, loads of sweet chocolate followed by dark sweet fruit and hints of pepper spice.Detect some vanilla and caramel, dark licorice, and malted milkballs.
T- Very complex, initial bitter and sweet chocolate flavors, roasted malt and toast, followed by more sweetness and pepper-heat as the beer warms
M- Thick, Thick, Thick, and coats all the way down. A bit syrupy for my taste, but delicious.
D- Split this with a few friends, I woke up on the couch where I drank this one. After this and a few homebrews I was fucked up! It became a bit difficult to finish as we delved deeper into the bottle and the beer warmed up. Glad I got to try this one.

Pours pitch black, bubbling up a great one finger dark brown head, lingers for a while until it turns to a thick sticky lacing.
Huge cocoa in the smell, lots of cinnamon and vanilla, milky and dark chocolate, fig, raisin, veggie chilli pepper, lower coffee notes, faint wood. The smell is incredible, with just a small hint of booze.
Roasty robust taste, huge with dark chocolate, riddled with dry plums and figs, spicy with a lot of woody cinnamon, rich vanilla, even faint licorice. Mellows down and gets a bit sweeter, with sticky molasses and toffee, only to be balanced perfectly in the end with some roasted coffee, dark malts and faint smoked woodiness. The chillies bring a nice warm prickle in the back of the throat, just enough so you know they're there. Taste really brings up all that's written on the label, amplified, rich and perfectly balanced.
Thick body, very smooth, with a very tiny bit of booze present, nowhere near disturbing. Full complex aftertaste, extra roasty.
A huge imperial stout, unique, worth any effort and future budget-hole to get again.
