750 ml bottle. Label says 9.0% ABV. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch light tan head. The head stays around for a long time, and there's a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, it smells like bittersweet chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, and some dark fruit. The taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some milk chocolate and a bit of anise. It's just like the label says, a bittersweet imperial stout. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's a bit slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it's a good imperial stout, I wouldn't mind picking up another bottle soon. It's always nice seeing another new local brewery bottle their products. This is the first Actual Brewing beer I've tried, and hopefully it won't be the last. $9.99 a bottle. (809 characters)

Thanks to kgncfl for sending. I love trying obscure locals. This was consumed at the end of a long night of drinking, but I found this to be a bit muddled. A little hop, a little caramel, a little raisin, all adds up to a lot of confusion. Not quite a stout. Neutral recommendation from me. (290 characters)

It pours black, as it should. For being an imperial stout, it falls way short. Yes it had high alcohol, but that was about all I could taste. It lack the dark, roasty, maltiness that I felt it should have. It was very thin, and left me wanting more. And not in a good way. Great label, but I would not recommend it. (315 characters)
