Poured from a 22 o.z. bottle into a Half Acre pint glass.

Thin, ebony color with edges of caramel similar to cola. Carbonation is present, but no foamy head to speak of.

Big coffee presence. Slight banana and chocolate. Minimal dark fruit (dried) aroma.

Sweet chocolate with mingling coffee. Great nuttiness without being bitter, but has an undeniable hop.

Thinner for an Imperial, but has a great, lingering finish. 10% abv so it makes complete sense.

Very good beer from an exceptional brewery.
