A- Pours a thick oily black, with a beautiful dark brown head that recedes a little over time. It maps well as the glass empties.
S- The strong aroma of coffee is the first smell in this one. Then a faint hint of chocolate followed by the alcohol. Finishes with the smell of gooey prunes.
T- Tastes as black as it looks. The sweetness expected from the smell comes through first, immediately followed by the strong coffee. The %11.5 ABV is obvious. Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing is up to you. I enjoyed the boozy taste.
M- Thick and oily, the light carbonation adds to the silky mouthfeel.
O- Overall this brew is a boozy, wonderful, and sweet imperial Stout. It lives up to everything the name says it is. Might be best to share this $16 bomber with friends, and save it for the end of your night.

Poured a 22oz into a goblet.
A: pours a real nice pitch black velvet with a sharp thin carbonation dissipating quickly. Pretty color on the head but quickly goes to a flat appearance. Not an issue. How I like my stouts.
S: Real nice coffee like fair trade. Bitter chocolate. Real clean. No off putting bitterness.
T: Amazing. Reminds me a lot of brunch weasel. The coffee is so clean and integrates well with the subtle chocolate. A lot of stouts I want bourbon barrel aged to hide some things or enhance. Not this guy.
M: Damn near perfect from start to finish. Long finish leaving u with a refined chocolate lingering non-syrupy feel. No alcohol burn.
Overall: Pretty shocked. Not expecting much thinking this was gonna be another marked up international offering that would rival a stone ris. Not the case here. Going back for more prob not to age though. One of those rare stouts I can't see barrel aging benefiting.
