A: Opaque. Light isn't going through this one. Thick, clumpy brown head that looks just like oatmeal. Pretty much like engine oil out of a can, which is what I expect from an Imperial Stout.
S: Licorice, strong semi-sweet chocolate presence. Some espresso, roasted malts, and brown sugar/molasses.
T: Smooth. Sweet roasted maltbase, some milk chocolate notes, some dark chocolate, and a grainy hop bitterness to balance it out a little.
M: It's a meal in itself. Chewy, hits the lips like a milkshake. Very smooth beer, silky. Some alcohol warmth after a few sips.
D: One of the best Imperial Stouts I've had, goes right up with Stone's. The thickness and ABV limits drinkability, but you just need one and call it a night. This is what I expect Imperial Stouts to be. Too bad this beer is costly, because I would consume it often. This is a rare treat to myself whenever I feel like giving my beer-lovin' soul a high-five.

Ten Fidy is possible the best imperial stout. Black darkness that is like motor oil. Pours with very little head. So smooth, hints of vanilla blended with a dark chocolate coffee finish. Doesn't taste like a 10.5%, what is tastes like is heaven. It will sneak up on you!
