Thanks to Matt for this one. 750ml bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter.

Pours a massive 3 finger, creamy, thick mocha head with great retention. Beer is pitch black. Lacing is stringy and thick with excellent cling and big, thick, oily legs. Outstanding. Couldn't ask for more from an imperial stout.

Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, cocoa, mild pepper tartness, and grainy coffee. Rich, robust and aromatic. Pretty good though a bit unintegrated and with some weird flavors floating about.

Opens chocolate, sweet dark fruit, cocoa, fudge with a slight coffee presence right at the end. Peppers hit hard right at the finish, tickling the back of my throat. Spicy going down. Finishes sweet and chocolatey with a good bit of heat. Nice but again, this leaves me a bit wanting... for a bigger coffee presence.

Light to medium bodied with low carbonation. Smooth and slightly boozy in the mouth but a bit thin. Goes down oily and warm. Finishes slightly messy with a lingering aftertaste. Wish this had a bit more body.

A decent beer overall but there were a couple of aspects that left me wanting. The body is a bit thin and the coffee and pepper flavors are a touch out of balance. Ok but I wouldn't revisit this with so many decent beers in the style floating around.
