5/5 rDev +18.2%
Poured an opaque dark brown, nearly black, with a small, thick brown head. The aromas this beer gave off were nothing short of mouthwatering... all very desert-like, predominantly raisins and chocolate, with some sweet spices thrown in, but some deeper whiffs revealed smells of a dark raisin cake, oatmeal raisin cookies, even maraschino cherries. Taste was just as huge... obviously, a big malty flavor right off the bat with some cascade hoppiness. The tastes of all things present in the aroma coat your tongue burnt malts, raisins, chocolate, dark and sour fruits like cherries, baking spices and a slight alcohol burn on the tongue and throat, then a bitter coffee-like finish that is unbelievable. The mouthfeel is thick and syrupy like it should be. This is a top-notch Imperial Stout.

Damn - just incredible
this stout pours inky black hole black with a big tawny brown head
nose is of complex chocolates and licorice mixed with black strap molasses
taste is big and rich - dark chocolates, black licorice, molasses
the ABV is hidden very well ( at first anyway ) nightcap luxury stout !
finish is long and satisfying - all things dark and luscious
a true masterwork of brewing.
