Wow what a nice stout. Pours pitch black with a tall toffee colored head that leaves a nice lacing. I smell roasted grains with a sweet hint of molasses and dried fruits. A very nice bitterness here that's balanced well by a rich sweetness. I really like the way this beer develops in the mouth. A very pleasing silky texture followed by a second release of carbonation in very fine texture. I would rate this right up there with Stone Russian Imperial Stout. Highly recommended.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

12oz bottle poured into a stout glass.

Pours midnight black with a thick, rich caramel/mocha head. Beautiful head, pretty good lacing.

Not too much of a smell. Some coffee and butter, as well as dark fruit.

Taste is very caramel and malt forward. Still the great coffee taste of a stout. Very balanced. Good stout.

Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. Very hearty but doesn't sit heavy. Nice combo.

Great beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Very black! Can't see a thing. Poured on the side so almost no head.

S: Not much here except some cracker and oat. Maybe some bitterness.

T: This is pleasant but not super complex as I'd hoped. Malt, toast, oat flakes, char, and tobacco. Got some pretty good flavors. Some of the booze comes through though.

M: Fairly thick but there's a lightness to it, so it's right in the middle. This is a very well-done piece of the beer.

O: Not bad. I may just not be in a stout mood tonight so I'll be as objective as I can be. This beer is pretty awesome. Not the most complex beer you'll ever have, but it is well made for the style. The only thing I didn't like was the booziness, but it wasn't overpowering.

4.23/5  rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from bottle into KBS snifter. Aggressive pour. Appearance is a beautiful jet black. Upon pouring, a foamy cappuccino-like foam is formed atop the glass. The foam eventually recedes into a thin, almost transparent layer covering the entirety of the surface and ultimately settling into a ring around the glass which accompanies you as you finish the beer.

The nose at first instance is that of chocolate milk. Coffee aroma closely follows and there are traces of dark fruit and molasses. Its taste has a sweet start with notes of chocolate and very faint vanilla. The finish is bitter, pleasantly so – a bitter finish you would expect from espresso.

Its mouthfeel is thick and chewy, quite appropriate to fully appreciate the spectrum of flavors in this beer.

Overall, a quite solid Imperial Stout – I would definitely seek again and enjoy it on a regular basis.
