On tap at RealTail fest at Freetail brewpub. Poured into a snifter.

A: Dark thick black with thin mocha head. No lacing and head is very thin.

S: Vanilla, smoke, dark chocolate, and molasses.

T: Dark chocolate, molasses and smoke. Some faint vanilla on the finish. Kind of hot.

M: Thin but coats the tongue well enough. High carbonation.

D: Pretty good Impy but kind of hot. More age would do this beer good.

Serving type: on-tap

Bottle: Bottle is an incredible gusher with two-third of the bottle ending in the sink. Poured a pitch-black color stout with a medium size foamy head with limited retention. Aroma of chocolate malt with light dry roasted malt is intriguing. Taste is an interesting mix of black chocolate malt with some light dry roasted malt with light residual sugar notes. Some small traces of smoke can also be detected. Body is lighter than expected and carbonation was exceptionally strong when I opened the bottle but died quite quickly. Interesting beers but texture and level of carbonation was definitely off in this bottle.
