look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Bottle from PP bottle shop and poured into a Duvel snifter. Poured a jet black color with a mocha brown thick head, plenty of lacing.( read other reviews the carbonation is diffently a plenty in the bottle). Their is a lot of sediment at the bottom so watch out when pouring.( a quarter sized piece settled at the bottom of my glass but I was careless when pouring) Smell is a mix of dark fruit covered with slight chocolate and medicinal hop smell with a lingering alcohol present. Taste is upfront dark fruit with the chocolate and coffee coming next followed by a mild alcohol finish. Mouthfeel is fullbody but a little lighter than a lot of thicker Imperial stouts out there. The carbonation is a little high for my taste especially when combined with the alcohol feel but by no means overdone. This is a complex high alcohol IS ( bottle states 11% ABV) that isnt a session beer but I couldnt stop sipping until it was all gone.
