Deep black opaque color brown head. Poured from a bottle. Wonderful aroma: vanilla, coffee, chocolate, butterscotch. Sweet taste, some roasty coffee notes. Wonderful chocolate, toffee, coffee flavor. Finishes of so slightly bitter. This seductive beer could get you in trouble. It has 8.9% alcohol but it is smooth and not boozy at all. One of the best imperial stouts I've had ď and this is a style I drink a lot of

Great beer, awesome roasted coffee aroma. Very dark in color with a very very dark head. I really like the roast coffee and chocolate flavors combined with the sweet malt flavors. It is a very rich beer and you can't even tell it's 8.8%. The whole beer is very balanced overall no flavors overpowering another.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours pitch black with a dark, thick, frothy head. Awesome head retention.

There is some black licorice in the aroma along with dark chocolate and toasted malt. Light notes of caramel are sprinkled throughout. A touch of grass in the background.

Some heavy dark fruit mixed with dark chocolate in the flavor. Caramel is much more prevalent here with a smoothe dark roast holding just the slightest bit of coffee notes. Moderate bitterness cleaning things up towards the finish.

Overall, a pretty good beer. I love the English touches although I must say I still prefer Samuel smith.

Pours black with a three finger light brown head. Smell is very sweet, slightly roasty. There is mild coffee flavor and heavy chocolate. The flavor follows the smell very closely. It has a nice, thick mouthfeel. As it warms up a fantastic smokey, tobacco flavor emerges.
