Produced a 2.5 finger beige head. Beer color is an ultra dark brown.
The aroma is of roasted malts, dark chocolate, and caramel.
The taste is similar, but with a light pine hop bitterness. Heavy mouth-feel, and low carbonation.
Delicious! Smooth, and the high abv isn't noticable in the taste.

12oz Bottle from the Potsdam NY IGA for $3

Appearance - Dark brown colour with an average size frothy light brown head. I can't make out the amount of carbonation showing and there is some great lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Malts, chocolate, coffee

Taste & Mouth - There is an average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, chocolate and coffee. There is also quite a bit of a roasted/charred/burnt type flavour and a bit of vanilla.

Overall - Nice appearance and lots of roasted/burnt flavours - if that's what you're into. Not a whole lot on the nose though. The booze was well hidden. An above average Imperial Stout, but not up there with the best.

Coal-black body sporting a thick, rich, light brown head; plenty of lacing and rings on the glass. Mocha coffee and dark roasted malt grains with a touch of bitter chocolate and vanilla in the aroma. Rich chocolate flavors with a light astringency; soothing bitterness and a touch of alcohol. Very heavy, very smooth body.

Liquid black gold here! Bold presentation reinforced with delicious, bountiful spectrum of malt flavors. The hop bitterness tames the grain sweetness while the alcohol content remains in the background. Dark malts exude roasted grain and coffee character. An extremely tasty black ale heavy hitter...
