Pinky finger of Medium khaki colored head that only stuck around for a minute
Nice Creamy foam buildup on top.
When swirled it foams up but falls back in quickly.
Black as night.
Sweet. So much chocolate
Smells similar to the aroma that eminates when you make your own invert sugar (Belgian Candi Sugar).
Wow! Really thick.
Chocolate is the first thing you'll notice.
Taste the raisens. There is a tobacco flavor to it.
I can taste the alcohol. It's not overwhelming, but it's definitely there. It actually suites this beer well. The sweetness and the warming from the alcohol are a nice combination.
It's not the best Imperial stout, but it is extremely good.
I give this a B+. It's good. Not great. But I'd definitely have another without any argument.
Worth the Money?:
It's worth what I paid for it ($6.99 for 22oz). It was an enjoyable experience. I'd pay that for this again.

2011 vintage. Poured on tap and served in a snifter, the beer is jet black, with subtle ruby highlights, and a dense, foamy, dark tan head. Aromas of coffee and booze forward, with old world fruit sweetness, woody notes, and an underlying coffee bitterness. Beast. Flavors are a blast of rich sweetness on the tongue, with black strap molasses leading the charge, followed by cocoa nibs, bitter coffee, vanilla, oak spice, and a ribbon of booze. Holy hell, this is big! Smooth and velvety in mouth, with a rich, darkly sweet aftertaste of molasses and brown sugar. Slick, smooth finish. Wow...this is a greay beer!

Appearance: It has a nice jet black color to it. It has a nice creamy tan head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: The aromas definitely give out hints of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and some dark fruit (mainly raisins).
Taste: Like the aromas, it has a some sweet roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, a slight nuttiness, vanilla and raisins.
Mouthfeel: It has a low carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.
Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied by good flavors and aromas.
