T: Bitter coffee and dark chocolate.

M: Full bodied, smooth and delicious.

O: A really tasty imperial stout, with a really dull name. It makes me want to try Silva Stout.

It's basically pure black with a dark brown/tan foamy head and some little lacing behind. Not much of a scent. Kind of chocolate and metallic. A bit of malt.

It has a surprisingly sweet taste. It's kind of like bubblegum, watermelon, grape all mixed together. Smoothish, with a slight sour bite to it. It's not at all what I was expecting. No real hop presence. It's not bad, but it's not my style for a black ale.

Pours like motor oil and is pitch black in the glass. Attractive dark and abundant head with good lacing.
Complex roast aroma with some dark fruit and a nice streak of hops. Well done.
RIS like presentation with appealing hops flavors including a nice streak of lingering bitterness in the very long finish. Dark fruit, soft drying and just overall goodness.
Drinks and feels bigger than 8.8%. Rich and full with soft carbonation enhancing the feel.
This is a very nice beer and a decent value. Glad they made it out this way. A good beer for a winter day watching some football.
