12 oz bottle, poured into a snifter at ~40 degrees F.

Appearance: Typical stout - pours inky blank, forms a tan head that lingers for a spell ere collapsing into a ring and cap. Lacing left by said ring and cap is decent.

Smell: Roasted toffee, with a subtle hint of spices, a touch of loam, and a dash of coffee.

Taste: That's...interesting. The flavor palate opens with an almost scorched molasses tone, supported by a backbone of blackened malt and a soft, lightly roasted coffee note. Shortly after, it swirls into a blend of spices and fruits, with a distinct grassy tone underneath - white pepper and savory stand out of the spice mix, alongside ripe plums and dates for the fruity side, possibly a dash of pomegranate. By the finish, a slight shadow of chocolate appears, before an aftertaste that is at once lightly roasted coffee, plum, and fig. Starting somewhere around the middle of the tasting process, a faint mineral-metallic tone manifests, like a haze of iron particles in the beer.

Mouthfeel: Thick, dense, rich, creamy, not excessively carbonated - this nails the stout mouthfeel.

Overall: This is definitely a layered and unexpectedly fruity stout, and a tasty one. It's most definitely a sipper, as opposed to a quaffer. Provided I can stumble across 12 oz bottles of it for a decent price, or perhaps discover it on tap somewhere for a pour, I would repeat it. It is, however, not even remotely sessionable, at least to me. This is more a nightcap or dessert.

Dark brown to almost black with a decent mocha cap that quickly dissipated and left slight lacing. Smells of booze, burnt sugar, molasses, dark chocolate, black coffee, and dark fruits like cherries and pomegranate. Taste follows the nose with all the flavors working with the booze up front. Quick strong and the alcohol is somewhat hidden but I know it's there. Real thick and creamy and very easy to drink. This was a great Imperial Stout and I'm glad I have some to age.
