12 oz can, poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a half of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds of foam that settled atop the beer.

Aroma: I’m stuffed up at the moment (I know that being in that condition is not ideal for reviewing a beer) so I’m not getting much out of the aroma, but other reviewers have noted aromas of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, subtle smoke, subtle licorice and boozy alcohol.

Taste: Brilliant!! Massive roasted malt up front, imparting notes of toasted dark bread, some subtle coffee notes and smoke, followed by tons of brown sugar-like sweetness, a touch of dark chocolate, a touch of licorice, and a touch of floral hops. Absolutely delicious!!

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smooth as silk as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 10%, there is quite a pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Wow, just wow!! What a beer! What a stout!! MASSIVE, bold flavors, all wrapped up in an extremely smooth and creamy beer. Truly one of the best non-barrel-aged imperial stouts that I’ve had and equal to Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout, Founders’ Imperial Stout, Great Lakes’ Blackout Stout and Left Hand’s Wake Up Dead. Truly Spectacular!!

Some what over hyped. A great beer but let me down just a bit. Dark roasted malts, chocolate followed by mineral, dry dark fruit. really good not great.

I've been wanting to try this beer for awhile. I can say this beer did not disappoint me at all and I will search it out in the future. Definitely worth trying.
