look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

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."
