An opaque black-brown color with a decent dark tan head and plenty of
lacing. The aroma brings a deep, beautiful leathery malt with charcoal-raisin
highlights. Captivating and edible. The flavor includes more charcoal malt intensity with licorice and raisin ideas. There's a bit of grassiness but malt is dominant and it's velvetty
smooth with just a hint of carbonation and a full body. A classy, big beer that
does not disappoint!

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

Tasted On: 01-24-2013
Freshness: Bottled on 12-06-2012, as far as I can tell
Packaging: 12 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Snifter
Purchased: Single from Frugal MacDoogal, Nashville

A: Big tan head, 2 fingers high, sits on top of this black and opaque beer. Shows good head retention and very good lacing.

S: Dark chocolate aromas feature some sweetness, plus toasted malts and coffee.

T: Taste includes bittersweet chocolate, coffee and a roasted bitterness, and earthy hops. A little on the astringent side.

M: Smooth mouthfeel of oats and a medium level of carbonation. The finish has bitterness of heavily-roasted grains.

O: Overall a good stout, but could benefit from some additional malt sweetness. I enjoyed this one better on draft as well.

12 oz bottle bottled on 12/18/12

A: Black with brown head. Very good lacing that sticks to the glass.

S:Mainly semisweet chocolate and roasted malt. Some coffee, toast, and vanilla in the background. A bit bigger would be better.

T: Taste follows the nose very closely; mainly semisweet chocolate and roasted malt. Roast approaches a bit of bitterness towards the end similar to coffee with a small hop note. Very solid, but could be a bit bigger.

M: Thick, smooth, low carbonation. Wet.

O: Straightforward imperial stout with good taste and aroma. Bigger would be better, but considering the price this is very good buy.
