Poured out of a bomber size (22 oz) into an arrogant bastard pint glass. After cracking it I took a whif straight from the bottle and it smelled awesome, bottom line it spoke its name. After pouring the look of it was exactly as I would expect, black. It was already dark in the room but it did seem to me to be a somehow impossibly miniscule lighter amount of black than some other imperial stouts I've had. The head was off-tan reddish which I love to see, it always seems to be one of the trademarks of a solid cappuccino flavored stout. After tasting, the smell and the look of the beer had already defined the flavor of this brew, no surprises in that. Roasted malt and whatever hops they threw in give it a SOLID coffee flavoring, like the dark roasted kind of coffee that I love to drink, bold and in your face. This is balanced with a sweetness that comes in very smoothly and to me remains very camouflaged and in the background of the flavoring. The finish has a little carbonation which brings out the initial flavors even more which again is balanced well with the sweetness in the beer. Definitely a recommendable beer, I mean there are others out there which are better so I can't say this is a must have but seriously if you get a chance try this bad boy!
