Served on-tap at the brewery on March 26th 2013
A - Totally pitch black with one finger of tan head, thick wall of lacing
S - Fig, cherry, roasted chocolate, nice smoke, a little woody.
T - Mild smoke, bitter earthy dark hop tone, drive fruit, very subtle though, roasted coffee and chocolate.
M - Creamy yet still a tad bitter, not overly sweet
O - Very good imperial stout, not record breaking, but solid, balanced with a decent complexity of flavors.

Beer #12 8/9/13
This beer is brown, and fairly thick. It looks stout thick, though I wouldn't say it looks imperial stout thick. Left on the glass are clingy rings of tan lace after a slow fade off a head just over a finger tall.
This beer is roasty with some cocoa in it, a bit of bitterness to a fairly strong malty backbone. I could pin this for a stout by the character, if barely by the strength. I wouldn't pin this as imperial, though, much less an RIS. It just doesn't have the depth. There's a tangy note going into the finish.
The body is pretty good, but not nearly full enough for the style. It's pretty smooth, and it's not too thin, it just doesn't quite meet the standard.
Is this a better than average beer? Yes. Is it a better than average RIS? no. Fathead's makes some styles very, very well, but some need work.

A- cask conditioned so I'm labeling the serving style as such. Completely black with a thin beige head and walls of lace. Can't believe how light colored the foam is.
S- big roasted and coffee with cocoa. Woodsy sweetness and mineral water. A hint of wet dog but not so bad.
T- huge roasted flavor, more so than most RIS of this caliber. Chocolate and coffee are pushed to the back for burnt barley and herbal hops to for thru. Woodsy and earthy. Bits of vanilla, caramel and booze.
MF- large bodied. Fine cask carbonation. Creamy and sticky.
D- pretty awesome
