A: Pours black with a one inch mocha/tan head with fades to a thin cap and rim leaving rings and spotty lace.

N: Dark chocolate and roasted coffee along with fresh cake batter.

T: Chocolate cake with icing stuffed with roasted coffee. Chocolate dominates the coffee.

M: Semi-full body and moderate carbonation. Roasty and lingering chocolate finish.

O: Just a little bit too thin and watery for me. Smells better than it tastes.

Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black in the glass. Thin light brown head that dissipates quickly to a thin film and ring around the glass and slippery light lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, coffee and chocolate. Flavor dominated by coffee, dark toasted malt with chocolate and a hint of molasses. Finishes with charred coffee, a hint of dark fruit and hop and coffee bitterness. Medium bodied. A unique flavor that has hints of dark fruit around the edges, although the toasted malt and coffee are front and center. ABV well covered. In some respects, not quite as complex as most imperial stouts, but the suggestions of dark fruit esters pull this through and keep it interesting. A nice, different stout in a crowded field of good stouts.
