This is an awesome stout. Just trying it for the first time and I love it just as much as founders imperial stout, and that's my favorite. Very thick and dark with a somewhat small head that is deep brown. Smells of everything a great stout should smell like, coffee, dark chocolate, and slight hops. Taste is the same. Everything is balanced wonderfully and I can't wait to get some more. Thanks Oskar Blues

It's been a while since I had this one. Finally get to review it. Here goes:

A: Dark black. Pours a massive black head that leaves a ton of lacing. Looks delicious.

S: Good, but not what I was expecting. Lots of dark fruit and dark candy. Also a great amount of licorice. Not quite the chocolate bomb that I was hoping for.

T: Follows the nose. Plenty of licorice and dark fruit. Back of the palate is very bitter as well. Overall still a good beer, just slightly less than expected.

M: Very thick and creamy. Great.

O: Good beer but not as good as I was expecting. More dark fruit and licorice than chocolate and toffee.

Pours black as night. In the glass it makes the whole room darker.
Thick, rich head.
Sweeter on the midpalette than I prefer. Chocolate, malty, hints of molasses.
Very rich mouthfeel. Beee-eautiful texture.
Long, finish, not intense, of smoke and licorice.
Definitely a quality beer, even though it's not my personal favorite due to the sweetness.

one of the best imperial stouts on the market if you can find it. I was very lucky man today. Nice rich dark coffee and chocolate notes with a beautiful dark brown head wonderful aromatics.

Amazing beer but I would have enjoyed it a bit more bitter, but for a 10.5 very smooth. my friend said it best. you could drink it all day till you stand up.
