Pitch black with a thin, creamy brown head, that dissipates pretty quickly leaving just a pleasant little cap, followed by some lacing down the glass. Very nice.
Picking up just about everything they say is in it, starting with some strong chocolate, followed by roasted malts, coffee, booze, and a little whiskey. Strong and complex, but doesn't smell super pungeant or anything. Super interesting and delicious smelling.
Getting all of the above from the flavor as well, with the chocolate leading off again - a kind of mix between dark chocolate and sweet milk chocolate. The coffee and roast is mellow, but definitely there. I get just the faintest hint of whiskey at the back end, and very little alcohol presence despite the massive size. This is one amazing imperial stout, I must say.
Nice and heavy with a light carbonation bite to round it out. Smooth and creamy and delicate - definitely like a dessert and what I love about a great imperial stout.
This is definitely one of my new favorite imperial stouts! Amazingly smooth and complex yet not over the top at all - everything blends totally perfectly and doesn't bury the rest. I would love to always have this one on hand for those times when I want a massive beer, for sure.

Served on tap at the brewery in Denver. Pours a pitch black with viscous apperance and dark brown head. The nose is amazing, freshly brewed bold coffee is oozing with light notes of whiskey and roasted malts in the background. Vanilla and chocolate are also present. Taste matches the nose. Coffee up front, smooth notes of vanilla and chocolate with mild whiskey at the end. The barrel aged character is well integrated with the base beer. Mouthfeel is silky smooth with mild carbonation. Overall, this is an under the radar beer for sure. It can be found on shelves pretty easily, but the taste is right up there with many of the beers that never see the light of a shelf.

On tap at Mason Lounge. This is a humongous beer. The aroma is all coffee. As is the flavor in the mouth. A booziness combines with the roasted malt to create a delicious coffee cocktail. Coffee and sugar sweetness, shading into unsweetened cocoa territory on the finish. Full body.
I should revisit this another time when I'm less drunk. But tonight there's something not quite great about this, though. Should compare this to Lagunitas Capuccino Stout...
