A - Pours a midnight black with a two-finger tan foamy head. Good amount of lacing.

S - Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, and coffee.

T - Like the smell. Dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and some light smokiness. Finish is bittersweet.

M - Full bodied with low carbonation. Thick creamy mouthfeel. Dry finish.

O - This is a good Imperial Stout. Awesome flavor and mouthfeel. Highly recommended.

Dark and opaque mahogany with an inch high thick and frothy head of light brown foam that lingers long. Aroma of darkly toasted malt, cocoa and floral hops, notes of mint.

Rich and full flavor of cocoa and hops upfront, morphing to roasted malt, espresso, licorice and molasses. Firm bitterness from the roast and the hops. Subtle pine and citrus emerges through the rich dark malt in the finish. Moderately full mouthfeel. Excellent beer.

Sampling right now on 2/8/14. Had this a few times in the past. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a very dark brown/black with a 2-finger beige head that settles down to just the top and sides of the glass. LOTS of lacing is seen. One of the most I have seen in a good while actually. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is very pleasing with hints of coffee and chocolate roasted malt. The taste is the same and goes down easy. No harsh or bitter aftertaste at all. Overall a fantastic Stout.

Enjoyed a bottle poured into an English pub glass. Let's do this. A dark reddish brown to black brew, with a solid brown head. Smells roasted, dark, and rich ... Yet surprisingly vibrant and fruity at the same time. Brace yourself, this one's got layers and layers of flavor. Initial blast is a malt bomb, cacao and dark molasses, accompanied by a nice deep smoky note. Once the palate acclimatizes to this, you might get some sweet brown flavors like toffee and whiskey, with the rich sweetness revealing itself over time. Some fruity grape juice peaks at you and then disappears. A search reveals some floral tobacco notes and a tinge of licorice, even as the overall vibe remains quite sweet rather than super dry and chalky like an Irish stout. Is that some gooseberry-type American hops?? Veers towards chocolate milk for a moment and then darts away; as I try to re-focus I get some red berry and watermelon, I swear to God. This one is fruity 'till the (fairly) bitter end. Not a ton of coffee roasted notes but oh wait, there's a little light roast and a subtle floral rosewater and crabapple effect. Holy shit, what a great complex stout. Bright and fruity for an "imperial" and one can plumb the deep, dark depths for all kinds of fresh flavors. One can taste the hops but not in a way that clashes with the dark malts. Dare I say the body is on the light side for the style, creamy, smooth, with more carbonation that many dark brews? Almost could pass for an "Imperial dark IPA" if the hops delivered more citrus and pine character. Magic.
