super dark cocoa head (one of the darkest I have seen in some time), some audible sizzle while standing at 2 fingers of attention, soapy/craggy flotilla of goodness on top of jet black, uber black, utter black, pitch black.. did I mention the hue ? light doesn't even bother to
wander into the zip code of this thing, I think I even lost whatever tan I had as it was sucked in by this massive vortex of black gravitational pull, grappling lacing tears down the sidewalls, so yeah.. it's ok looking. er, monstrous looking!
dry sweet cocoa with sugary molasses, some light roast notes, faint prunes, a real sense of dryness and sweetness are the strongest notes here, nice
smooth in a weird way, it almost 'floats' on your tongue, and then some of the big flavors hit, there is that strangely dry almost chalky flavor on the middle of your tongue, on the forward sides there is some sweetness akin to chocolate and then in the back there is some bitterness mixed with roasted tones, this thing really coats the mouth, the ABV is barely noticeable (if at all), the flavor is pretty damn deep on this puppy, full mouth feel with deceptively bright carbonation, as you linger on the chocolate bitterness seems to assert itself a touch more and the alcohol peeks out as well giving it a bigger overall flavor almost as if it is building upon itself
woah. f the yang, get the yin. deep flavor, big ass ABV and bold. a must try for impy stout fans imo

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.
Appearance: utterly black with a finger of creamy dark-tan foam atop. Not much more you can ask of a beer.
Smell: rich and roasty, but not acrid, with a good sweetness underneath. Coffee and chocolate come through, along with a nice dark-fruitiness. I'm a fan.
Taste: much like the aroma, in that it is super roasty without being astringent or acrid. Specific coffee and chocolate notes are a little toned down from the aroma, but there's still that subtle element of dark fruit complexity that I like. Quite good.
Mouthfeel: big body with a decent carbonation and a good creaminess. Appropriate for a stout of this nature; I quite like it.
Overall: this is a pretty satisfying Imperial stout. I could see myself drinking more of this.
