Disappointing. Maybe it was the name or the description, but this one failed to deliver for me.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Spit-shined boot black with a thin coating of dense tan head.

Has a well-focused aroma consisting of dark chocolate, coffee and molasses.

Quite smooth and creamy up front with a hit of coffee and chocolate following. Other notes of grain, pine, caramel and plum float in the middle. Has a touch of grind residue in the finish that serves to make it that much more authentic.

Has a big body of course, but carries its weight and hold its alcohol well.

This is how it ought to be.

Batch #41
Medium bodied RIS, but were it really shines though is the medium-light roast coffee beans and the nibs. It is a great blend with the right balance of the two without requiring a milk stout or being overtly sweet.

Superb imperial stout. Heavy on chocolate and coffee tones without overpowering alcohol forward. Very well balanced for such high ABV. Batch #35 is 12.4% ABV
