Bought at the proper pour a small business within the source. I've either like or really liked the stuff that eviltwin has put out so I decide to take a shot on this one. Bought for around 3 bucks, poured into a snifter. Side note: bottle is really full, potential for it not to have much carbonation due to lack of headspace.
A&S: Upfront lots of dark chocolate with some spices in the background. In the glass it is more sugary milk chocolate than dark. Some background tones include roasty coffee, cherries, and bourbon. Jet black colored beer. Head is caramel brown and pours about a finger and retains in a ring.
T&M: The taste is primarily roasty. A touch of bourbon and vanilla in it as well. Getting some spice presence midway though. More more bitter than it smelt. Alcohol is well hidden, but felt as it warms the body. A bit too smokey in the finish. Body and thick and syrupy, carbonation is present but low.
Overall: Nothing mind blowing, but pretty good. I'm glad I tried it. It is especially good considering the price and the ABV. Would probably buy again depending on the circumstances.

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.
