A: Pours imposingly black with a brown head from an epically metal bottle.

S: Roasted malt, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee and brown sugar in the nose.

T: Roasted malt, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, brown sugar, pretty much the same as the nose. Delicious.

M: Full bodied and smoothish.

O: I wish this hadn't gone away. I've heard bad things about the new version, at least in relation to this. Like they took something that wasn't broke, and, well, broke it. This, however, is a delicious, thick, heavy imperial stout, worthy of the blackest of metals. Listen to Venom or Melechesh as you sip this dark concoction.

Popped this bottle after a request from a fellow beer geek. Poured an inky black with minimal head retention. Smells of astringent malts, a hint of fusel alcohol, and bitter chocolate. Taste follows the nose, which was a bit of a disappointment. The patent malt used here is a little overbearing, as the charred malt flavor carries from start to finish, hiding any nuances that may have been lurking to come out. Finish is dry and lightly acrid. Glad I tried it, but was disappointed by it.
