Black body, ruby highlights along the bottom, and four fingers of dark tan foam that features an island floating on top.

Huge coffee aroma with a dollop of chocolate. Very inviting and enticing.

Taste begins with a huge slather of chocolate down the center of the tongue. Coffee bursts out along the edges of the tongue. Hop nip at the swallow.

Thick rich extra smooth mouthfeel.

Real good imperial stout I'd be happy to have another.

Bottle Appearance: Pitch black with short lasting light brown head Aroma: Chocolate, coffee Taste: Slight bitterness, earthy aftertaste Palate: Medium body, fairly lively mouthfeel, warm finish, slightly dry Overall: Good flavor, not too bitter.
