Puchased a bomber at 44th and France in Edina; my first sighting of it anywhere.
Cool creepy label. I like the sinister jester.
Poured into a pint glass a little light. Color during the pour was more dark tea than black. In the glass, just the edges shown a tinge blood brown. Otherwise just as black as you'd expect from the style. Relatively thin head. Lacing wasn't anything noteworthy.
It smells like a stout. Nothing really stands out. Taste is good, a very respectably balanced stout. The bitterness of the coffee is offset by the sweet of chocolate.
Mouthfeel was a nice surprise due to the thin appearance during the pour. Not overpowering, but much chewier than standard stouts.
Check this out if you see it. There's room for improvement but it's no slouch.

4/5 rDev -2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
Appearance : Dark and Black... Faint ruby hues appearing at the bottom of the glass. Kaki colored head.
Aroma: Dark and foreboding, Really toasted grains and toasted bread. A touch of smoky char with Dark Chocolate in the back. Floral Booze tones all over the ale.
Body: The body like Dragon's Milk was a bit thin hovering within the high medium to low full mouthfeel. soft carbonation was nice in this ale.
Taste: Softer on the dark tones when I would of though, left some hollow points along the way that the bourbon aged version filled nicely. Coffee, Dark Chocolate, Toasted Grains and Char on the palate with a big floral booze all over the place.
Overall: Nice ale, right now I prefer the barrel aged version, but if this had about 2 years of age. A lot would change and this would be a steamer on an ale. Cheers!

I have always liked this brew. Pours a thick black with deep tan head and spider web like lacing. Smells of deep roasted grains, chocolate, some coffee, and more chocolate. Decadent mouthfeel, and velvety smooth. Tastes of sweet dark chocolate up front, coffee and roasted grains on the sides---do I detect some deep roasted barley in there for depth(!?), and medium hop bitterness on the back changing into a cocoa flavor on the aftertaste. Booziness comes through later---have a seat! Very nice. Very luxurious. Just a great imperial stout. CHEERS!

3.58/5 rDev -12.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25
Appearance: black in color, 1/4 inch head, opaque, low carbonation
Smell: dark chocolate, smoke, and roasted malt
Taste: dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and light caramel
Mouthfeel: heavy bodied, low carbonation, sweet and roasty
Overall: An above average rich and heavy imperial stout.. The alcohol is well hidden, but yet I feel like I have had more complex and interesting examples in the style. Not a beer I would pass up, but not one I need to rush to again.
Serving type: on-tap
