Poured from the tap into a tuliped pint glass at Stout Studio City.

The beer is pure black with a solid looking dark tan head. Foam lacing all over. About as solid as can be.

A more subdued aroma than what I expected. Light coffee and bakers chocolate. A bit of roast behind it but compared to other imperial stouts the aroma does not permeate. OK

All the right notes are there. The roast and bitter chocolate are spot on. There's a nice cordial sweetness in there that adds a liquer character. Then on top of that you get a nice wood and bourbon note. Very nice.

Overall right up my alley. A hugely solid beer. Drinkable and smooth with a pretty unique character. Recommended. Just missing that aroma to put it over the top.

On tap at Uber

Pours black with a finger of tan head.

Smell is awesome, strong coffee and a bit of nuttiness.

Taste is smooth coffee roast, bitter the whole way through.

Very nice beer, masks the alcohol very well, wish there was more chance to try this.
