A big, creamy imperial stout. Pretty straightforward in smell and taste. Roasted malts, hints of coffee and chocolate, and contrary to what I've seen in other reviews, only a touch of alcohol in the taste. The beauty of this is the rich, creamy mouthfeel. Very dense. Not the most unique imperial stout, but an outstanding version with all the classic characteristics.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle into 25oz snifter. Thanks to JulianC for this one.

A: Pours a thick inky black color with a half-finger of bubbly dark brown head that faded into a faint scum.
S: Slight anise, slightly metallic, notes of volatile booze, and faint chocolate. Booze is a bit harsh. There is a mild roasted quality overall.
T: Much smoother than the nose let on. I get creamy and rich flavors of deep roasted malt, chocolate milkshake, sticky caramel and brown sugar, and a touch of anise and vanilla ice-cream in the finish. The aftertaste is roasted and lingering, but I also get some of the harsh booze from the nose. There's a bit of char smoky char in there is well.
M: Full body, fairly chewy mouthfeel, fluffy carbonation, and a shot of harsh booze. Booze isn’t warming or alcoholic, its more harsh and acetonic, but it does die down a but as the beer reaches room temperature.
O: Flavors are very rich and smooth, but the booze is slightly distracting. Good, but could be smoother.
