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

From Notes:
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.
