Poured from 32 oz growler into tulip glass.

A: Pours absolutely black with small one finger chocolate colored head. No lacing to be found.

S: Red wine, cherry, chocolate, and booze.

T: Follows the nose fairly closely. Big alcohol presence with nice chocolate and cherry tones.

M: Fairly thick with minimal carbonation. Coats the tongue completely.

O: A very nice Imperial Stout. I would love to have one of these in a bottle with some age on it.

Pours a pitch black color with a thin mocha head.
Aroma is dark chocolate and roast.
Flavor is loads of dark decadent chocolate. Bittersweet chocolate and red wine.
This beer is rich and robust. Not complex but it just hits the dark chocolate and dry red wine notes on he head. Extremely satisfying beer.
Extremely well Balanced.
Mouthfeel is full but not chewy.
I aurally prefer this to the bourbon Laika which was also outstanding.
