Black body, with a high quantity of ruby highlights.

Strong assertive coffee and chocolate aromas.

Kiss of chocolate up front, followed by coffee. Assertive hops at the swallow.

Mouthfeel is a bit wimpy for the style, need more to chew on.

Not a classic, but definitely enjoyable, and looking forward to future versions.

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.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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
