Dark brown with lots of red around the edges. Not much head to speak of.
I smell coffee though the aromas are not as pronounced as I would've thought. It also smells sweet and I get some floral hop aromas.
I taste coffee, caramel, toasted bread, and finishes with a bit of sweetness on the finish.
It's medium bodied, smooth up front with a little malt sweetness on the finish and is moderately carbonated.
This is not what I would've expected from an imperial stout. The coffee flavors and aromas seem to be muted but it's still tasty. Not sure that I would spring for a bottle of this again.

A: Brownish red coffee color. Looks a little light and not as dark as other imperial stouts I've seen. Unique coffee colored head.

S: Sharp sour scent like an acidic coffee or chocolate.

T: Chocolate comes through more than the coffee, it being slightly bitter but not too bad. Alcohol is well masked.

M: Sits with a good body but a little light.

I think the outstanding aspect of this beer is how well the alcohol is masked. The other flavors are not blowing my mind per se but it's still a pretty solid beer. Gonna pair it with some chocolate on my second glass.

This beer is a dark reddish-hued liquid. The head is light brown, foamy, but it quickly dissipates. The aroma is intense...malty, sugary, with notable roasted coffee scents underneath. The malt clearly stands in front of the coffee. Moderately sweet, some bitterness. Limited hop profile. The beer has low carbonation, but is also less full and robust than expected. It's a sweet, but balanced, bitter, slightly coffee'ed beer. Interesting, but not great.
