Thanks to EgadBananas for this bottle. Poured into a pint glass. Pours dark brown with a two finger length, creamy tan head that dissipates slowly. Some ruby red can be seen along the edges of the glass. Some sticky lacing is left on the side of the glass as the head dissipates. There are aromas of dark roasted barley malt, strong coffee, and mild chocolate. It smells sweet. The taste follows the nose. There are strong flavors of coffee and roasted barley malt. There's chocolate and molasses. The flavors are full and robust. The alcohol is not present in the flavor. The body is medium to full with adequate carbonation. The beer is smooth and creamy. The drinkability is high. This is an excellent beer. While the body is on the lower end for imperial stouts, this is by no means a point against this beer. Try this one if you can find it.
