P- Wegmans in Mechanicsburg, PA
A- coffee black with no light seeping through. poor head and no lacing.
S- molasses and coffee bean dominate the nose. I get subtle hints of chocolate.
F- bitter coffee hits the palate first and the roasted malts with molasses topping it off. not bad combo but the coffee is a tad too strong.
M- thick bodied and full of coffee and booze
O- not bad. a nice imperial stout. I like coffee but the coffee overpowers just a smidge.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45 degrees Fahrenheit
Appearance: Dark brown pour but once in the glass its pitch black with no light coming through. The head is almost nonexistent, more like a tan ring. Good lacing
Smell: Molasses, roasted malts, coffee. On the sweet side but not cloyingly so. I pick up more alcohol the warmer it gets
Taste: Roasted malts upfront, molasses in the middle, with bitter coffee notes and slight smoke to finish it off. Quite nice
Mouthfeel: Medium body and a little lighter than I expect from the style; Goes down smooth with a moderately bitter finish. Slight warmth from the alcohol
Overal: This is a solid RIS. Not the biggest malt bill, but the molasses adds complexity and makes up for it. Although not quite up there with my favorite imperial stouts, it's a very good representation of the style and I am looking forward to having this come winter. Cheers!

Drinking this while playing Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag. Seems appropriate.
Looks great. Great nose; mild smoke with thick malts. Tastes great too. Thick malt character with molasses edges. Really nice. Feel is superb. All stouts should have this level of thickness. An excellent stout. I will go back to this in the future. It's on the level of Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout.

Poured from a 22 oz bomber in to a snifter.
A- Pours pretty much black with less than a finger of light brown head that settles to a thin ring. Good lacing.
S- Mostly roasty malts and coffee. A little chocolate. Nice.
T- Follows the nose but is noticeably hoppier. A little smokiness and bitterness is here as well.
M- Medium full bodied and medium carbonation. Just a hint of alcohol.
O- Just a solid beer overall. Very nice offering from Otto's.
