The tan head atop this beer is thick and dense, just taller than one finger and well sustained at that state. It only falls very slowly and leaves lots of almost chunky webbing and netting below a ring before alternating to patching and heavy spotting.
Chocolate seems like part of the bills but doesn't bring all the decadence it could. The roasty base supports it well. There's a bit of caramel/toffee sweetness, necessary to even out a charred woods note that almost goes astringent and likely would without it. Roasted coffee rests underneath as part of the overall effect, and just under all of that is some meaty nut. It's more powdery on the nose and slightly more fudgy on the palate. It does have a sort of lactic creaminess to it, which clues me in to its nature despite only imperial stout being in the description available. It doesn't have as much of the sweetening and smoothing effect as some of the masters, but it almost reaches it.
It has a richness to it and has the body of an imperial stout, big and full. It's thick, but not terribly heavy. The robustness is felt as well as the roast, as it leans toward the dry end when wood and underlying roasty effects kick in more strongly than sweetness from middle to finish.
