look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured a 1/2" chocolaty brown head that left a nice coat of lacing on the glass. Body reminicent of crude oil.

S: Nose full of rich, roasty malt and coffee. Some alcohol is present as well.

T: On the tongue, more rich, roasty malt as the nose suggested, plus plenty of chocolate malt. Also notable were coffee and oats - all balanced by a noticable hop bitterness. Excellent.

M: Medium+ body with very low carbonation. Super smooth. Coats the mouth, resulting in a lasting aftertaste with a slight warming.

D: Well hidden alcohol (well, for 10% abv) with loads of flavor. As balanced as an RIS can be, and very drinkable. You'll have to slow yourself to keep from having your $14 four-pack disappear too quickly.

Oh - one more thing: if you live in a state where this is unavailable, happen to fall ass-backwards into a 4-pack, then share it with friends, you may regret it later.

Pours thick and black as they come with a Mocha brown one finger head. Smells like sweet chocolate, caramel, and slightly bitter like roasted coffee. The taste begins with an overwhelming creamy, smooth, thick mouthfeel. It tastes slightly nutty and a lot of that sweetness comes through. The finish is a mild roastiness. This is a fantastic beer. One of the best imperial stouts I've had.
