Pours pitch black with a thin tan head that dissipates rather quickly. Aroma of some dark fruit undertones, cocoa nibs, mild coffee, licorice, vanilla, chocolate and some sweet molasses. A sweet aroma which stays in balance and does not become cloying. Taste is savory and has notes of chili pepper, chocolate, dark dried fruits, raw cocoa nibs, licorice, fruity roasted coffee and vanilla. In the aftertaste you get the spiciness from the chilis which blend in nicely with the roastiness of the beer, but there is something missing in terms of complexity as a result of aging and the “fullness” of an imperial stout. Medium bodied with decent carbonation throughout. This was a dangerously drinkable beer with the high alcohol maskable fairly easy! However, I do have to go against the grain here and give this a rather outstanding rating just below excellent as there were several components to this beer that were missing in terms of complexity and being able to provide for a more memorable drinking experience.

The bottle label has 13.0% ABV vice 14.0%.
The body appears India ink black with a thin, wispy dark brown head; sediment left in the bottle. Deep and rich aroma of coffee grounds, charred grain, and chocolate. The taste exudes vanilla, cocoa, and sour cherries; boozy; cigarette ash. Heavy bodied; rich and smooth; velvety mouthfeel.
My goodness, what a heavenly, heavy brew! Big, bold, and rich throughout with incredibly robust and earthy dark tones in appearance, aroma, and flavor! Depth and complexity galore and a perfect for RIS/double stout fans. Most definitely a dark ale flavored road-trip in a bottle!
And I love the catfish on the bottle cap (not that that has anything to do with the beer or its taste appeal -- it just looks cool)...
