12oz bottle poured into a Darkness snifter.

A- pours black as night with motor oil consistency. A cappuccino-colored head fades quickly leaving no lacing behind. A thick film is left in the track of each sip.

S- licorice, vanilla, molasses, and coffee

T- licorice takes center stage with dark cherry, toasted almond, and molasses lingering in the background.

M- only slightly thicker than most stouts. There is more carbonation than the complete lack of head led me to expect.

O- Different from any stout I have tried before. It seems as though this would age incredibly well. Thanks to KMatlack for the awesome trade!

Drier than most of the big stouts I've enjoyed. Tastes more like an amped-up regular stout than most of the Imperials. Surprisingly light mouth feel. Encompasses a lot of roasted and spicy flavors. Touch of licorice. Burnt sugar more than mellow caramel. Plenty of malt, but barely a touch of sweetness.

Nicely spritzy on the tongue and highly drinkable. Black stout appearance with a little more brown to it. Fair nose of dark roast barley in the snifter, but not highly aromatic. Rich flavors but not lush.
