holy smoothness batman. it is hard to beleive this is an imperial stout with 9% alcohol. dark ruby black in color with a liberla frothy tan/brown head. smells sweet, not at all hoppy like you might expect. also missing chocolate/coffee notes that would expect, instead just a simple sweetness pulling through the nostrils. the chocolate/coffee notes are also absent from the taste, but fret not, this is so smooth, you wont beleive it. seems to lean more towards a milk stout with it's sweet taste, a milk stout with out that acidity. caramel notes as it warms ups, as well as a bit of plum taste, perhaps, something in their i cant put my finger on. simpler then most imperial stouts, but so smooth it more then makes up for it, and i think the 9% is a joke casue i dont taste it anywhere. dangerous! doesnt drink like meal so you could have a few, and you might just want to.
