Very smooth. It did not pack the sweet, malty punch that the Maharaja has and was sort of expected given the description, but very drinkable and subtle alcohol for an imperial.

A: Small head, mild cloudiness. Light carbonation.
S: A bit of nuttiness, chocolate as well.
T: Light coffee flavor with a little spice. Thick but balanced.
M: Smooth finish, a bit heavy but not no biting aftertaste.
O: Solid imperial, and would def have again, but was rated 99 by the warehouse I visited. Wouldn't rank it so high, but certainly a good strong stout for those looking for a tasty buzz.

Pours black with brown along the edges and a tan, mocha head. The smell is sweeter than i expected. Less roast than i would think from this style and a good amount of chocolate. Perfect thick mouthfeel. The flavor is very roasty. Coffee and burnt carbon with a perfect amount of hop bitterness. Although this beer is quite delicious, it's not as complex as i was hoping.
