Best stout that I've ever had from a bottle. Expensive at $19 a bomber, but if you like stouts, and you believe $19 for a beer is acceptable (I'm not sure I do, someone else bought the bottle I got to try), then drink this beer.

If this was a black IPA it would be the best I've ever had but it's a Imperial Stout. Only reason I rated it this high is because it's a fantastic tasting beer but far from the best Imperial Stout.

Dark black body. Very floral aroma with some sweet roasted chocolate smell. Tastes to me more like an imperial black IPA. The hops seem more present than the coffee and chocolate taste; however, still can easily pick up the sweet tastes. It’s very good, but a little to hoppy for my liking.

Smells like bittersweet roasty chocolate.. Bitter grapefruit and tropical fruits slam on to your tongue VERY quickly.. Hops are prominent here and dominant the chocolate.. Not thick.. Very similar to a black IPA, but much more complex and creative! DELICIOUS!
