Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a dark black with minimal head. The aroma gives off a lot of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts, along with some licorice. The taste has similar qualities with lots of chocolate, coffee, and some dark fruits mixed in. The mouthfeel is thick bodied with decent carbonation, but also somewhat creamy and smooth.
A solid imperial stout, although the ABV of 10% doesn't hide itself. There was just something about this beer that took it down a notch from being great - just a weird lingering aftertaste and the heat from the ABV didn't help either.
