Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of roasted dry malt notes with nice rich chocolates notes with a side of molasses. Taste is a very nice balance mxi between some roasted malt notes with some dry notes which are offset by creamy chocolates notes with medium sweetness notes of green molasses. Body is full with nice creamy texture with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Very well brewed and probably one of my favorite beer from Iron Fist.

Black colored ale with a very small brown colored head.
Smells smells of patent malt and berries with a little chocolate and caramel. Slight sour scent and a slight milk scent.
Starts out fairly sweet with a charred grain after taste. Bittersweet with a clear taste of milk sugar. medium bitterness but the lactose really softens the taste. the one thing I don't taste is berry. Chocolate and caramel but not really coffee.
Mouthfeel is thick.
Overall a tasty easy to drink beer. What it lacks in complexity it makes up for with smooth and pleasant flavor.

Pours jet black with a thinner but well sustained lighter mocha colored head atop,full on dark fruits and French roast coffee in the nose,the dark fruit notes have a brandy dipped element to them.Flavors of bitter chocolate and raisins,the alcohol provides sweetness that goes well with the chocolate flavors,alot of dark fruit and alcohol in the finish.It's big and somewhat alcoholic but the sweetness stays in check,big in the dark fruit department.

750 ml bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1 finger dense tan head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, caramel, toast, toffee, raisin, oatmeal, dark bread, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, caramel, roasted malt, toast, toffee, oatmeal, coffee, dark bread, light char, light raisin, and roasted earthiness. Slight roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, toast, toffee, oatmeal, dark bread, light raisin, light char, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice balance complexity, and robustness of dark/roasted malt flavors; with zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice imperial stout. All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of dark/roasted malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
