This is a very good imperial that would be acceptable at any beer tasting. The rich coffee aroma is quite appetizing when the bottle is cracked. This doesn't feel heavy in the mouth like other imperials though; I would actually compare this to something like Surly's coffee bender.
A: A rich black color, initial head that foamed out after a couple minutes. Not quite as viscous when swirled compared to other imperials.
S: Smells like a fresh brewed pot of coffee with perhaps an undertone of sweet chocolate.
T: The taste of coffee is very strong, the forefront of the flavor, I couldn't really pick up any of the cask flavoring ... perhaps it may need to sit and mellow? Still, very flavorful and interesting imperial.
M: The feel was not so much a smooth creamy that I expect from my favorite imperials, but more of a effervescent like a standard porter. I would not say it detracted from the beer, but was not what I was expecting.
O: This is really an excellent beer if the consumer enjoys coffee stouts or coffee porters. The aroma and flavor combination are enjoyable though the smoothness and feel seem off from an excellent imperial.
