Best by 5/6/15. Not meant to age?

Dark roast coffee black with light tan head. Retains pretty well.

Smell is coffee and dark chocolate with some fruit mixed in.

Chocolate flavor up front with sweetness held in check by a bit of hop bitterness. Bakers chocolate and cocoa powder. Sweetness seems to take over as it warms some and a bit of anise is mixed in.

Medium body and medium carbonation. Seems to thin out a bit halfway thru.

Above average imperial stout. Nothing earth shattering but it's flavorful and drinkable. Almost a session stout.

Part of an eight pack assortment of apparent ass kicking "double" brewa, let's give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a whiff of deep toasted malts and herbal hoppy undertones. On the pour this brew is motor oil black with a huge dark tan head that really holds up. On the taste this brew is richly heavy and very viscous with a nice balance of roasted malts with a tinge of a hop bite. The taste stays more prominently malty throughout with a sweet kick at the end followed by a flat bitter aftertaste. No where at all is the 8.8% ABV detectable. This is a fine brew but the ABV must be sneaky to say the least.
