4.29/5 rDev +6.2%
From a growler in a snifter glass.
A- Crude oil black in color with a 1f taupe-tan colored head. Heavy lacing completely coats the inside of the glass, falling off very slowly. Hearty look.
S- Coffee and chocolates, sweet and bitter. Molasses perhaps. Roasted malts pushed to the limit of smokiness. No alcohol presence, very pleasant.
T- Chocolaty with coffee and caramel. Some nuttiness and earthy hops. Roasted characteristics.
M- Velvety smooth. No booze burn. Creamy.
O- The most drinker friendly high abv stout that I've had. There's no sign of its 12% abv. And it looks, smells and tastes great.

Only a few sixtels of this one was released, figured I would do the honors of adding this one plus review.
A: Pitch Black, sizeable mocha head had dissipated once the glass reaches me.
S: Should have let this one warm but didn't have much time, smell is chocolate, slight roast and malt but definitely subdued, would most likely improve if let warm. However, had other Imperial Stouts that even cold the smell jumps out of the glass
T: Choclatey goodness. Not getting some of the stronger flavors (coffee etc) some Imperial stouts boast. Not much else going on, tastes like almost like a imperial milk stout, not thin though, very nice.
M: Nice. Very Very smooth and silky.
D: High, milky mouthfeel, no booze present makes this one go down pretty easy
O: Nice treat. I don't think this one will blow anyone away considering some of the stronger character yet highly drinkable Imperial Stouts like Founders etc, but definitely worth a pint.

4.5/5 rDev +11.4%
Appearance: Pours a nice black color with good light brown head, leaves lacing
Smell: Nice bouquet of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate
Taste: Again, nice roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, decent earthy hop flavors
Mouthfeel: Full body, good carbonation
Overall: Fantastic Imperial Stout from Kane. Drinks easy, no signs of the high alcohol content. This could easily go up against the big names in imperial stouts

3.9/5 rDev -3.5%
Appearance: Arrives with a film of foam pancaked on top o the fudge brown liquid; leaves a few dots behind
Smell: Roast, graham cracker, dark chocolate and coffee
Taste: Dark chocolate on the opening, with graham cracker and coffee flavors developing; roasty, in the middle, with some burnt caramel and smoke; the finish is somewhat sweet
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet
Overall: A complex brew though a bit too sweet for my palate
