Dark almost black in the glass with tan head
Fruity chocolate smell
Strong dark chocolate with fruitiness in the background and a mild hop finish
Good full mouthfeel
Overall a good, but not great imperial stout

Beautiful black brew tinged with brown hues. Big, full brown head, with excellent retention and lacing.

Very nice strong but balanced aroma: roasted barley, cream, and cocoa. Just the barest hint of grapes in the background.

Flavor follows the nose: lots of roasted barley, manifest as a bitter dark stout. Powdered cocoa, a hint of black coffee, chewy barley, and a nice creamy undertone. Very slight alcohol heat.

Silky, thick mouthfeel, shy of the thicker stouts. A little back-end heat. No foaming or sting. Lovely.

This is a well-crafted, straight forward imperial stout, and is an excellent representative thereof. It's not overly hoppy, letting the bitterness of the roasted malt carry the balance. It has a depth of flavor that is delicious without being overpowering. I think this is an excellent brew, offered at an excellent price point.
