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.

4.64/5 rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
Poured from the 12oz. can into a snifter.
This amazing brew purs a deep, inky and oily black with about a one-finger head that fades into some lingering foam around the egde. Only a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is roasty malt -- the darkest of dark chocolate, roast coffee, rich black tea. There are also notes of dark dried fruit .
The taste is an assault on the tongue. Intense. Chocolate, a bit of sweet toffee and raising and then big, bitter dark chocolate. The lingering, drying bitter note on the tongue has hints of more chocolate and roast coffee and malty Assam tea.
The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky with a bit of carbonation as well.
Overall, just wow. This beer does not disappoint. One of the best stouts I've tasted.
