4.45/5 rDev +9.1%
A: pours black with a finger of dark tan head that fades into a thin cap with decent lacing.
S: roasted malts with bitter cocoa and dry piny aromas dominate. There are coffee and char notes as well.
T: Wow. Roasted malts with very dark chocolate and bitter, roasted coffee hit first. Piny hop notes with a touch of sweet cream flavors follow with a finish that is roasted, charred, and lightly hoppy. Amazing.
M: thick body with low carbonation, this beer is thick with enough carbonation to accent the hop characters well.
O: this might be more of a black ale than imperial stout, but it's fantastic. Tons of wonderful hop and roasted malt characters are present. Its one big fault is a weak nose.

4.35/5 rDev +6.6%
On tap at the Eccentric Cafe on 7/21/12
A) Nearly impenetrable dark brown with some light trying to pass at the base of the glass. Poured an 1/8th inch head that lasted a long time before moving to the edge. Bit o' lace.
S) The aroma secures the description of the beer: dark chocolate and coffee - bitter, roasted and scorched. There is but a ghost note of imperial stout sweetness. So plain, yet so alluring.
T) Tasty dry, roasted bitterness (but it's not overdone). This is actually well balanced for such a thing. Roasted coffee and bitter dark chocolate are layered in abundance.
M) Medium/medium-plus feel with appropriate carbonation. The clean finish has mild residuals.
D) To cop a line from a Beck song, "Please enjoy. Hell yes."

Had at Bells Eccentric Cafe on tap.
Pours super dark with a nice brown head.
Smells really good with a blast of hops and roasted malt. I get a little coffee as well.
Taste like a black IPA with a third stout poured in. Really good and strong. The hops get you up front and the roasted malt comes on the back end for a nice brutal finish. There is nothing soft about this beer. It's in your face!
Mouthfeel is solid, even though it leaves you bitter.
Glad I got to try this!
BTW it's 10.4% ABV
