A- A hard pour yielded a big frothy tan head. It subsides fairly quickly but does stay as a cap for awhile. Color is shall we say, dark as knight? Obviously black but on the pour it didn't seem oily thick.
S- Burnt malts. Theres a sweetness to the nose. It's got a bit of baked bread aroma to. Underlying molasses, and some dark fruit in here as well, plums.
T- Big roasted espresso profile here. Malts are incredibly charred. Throughout the brew is layers of caramel, dark fruits, and some dark chocolate. I let sit for over a year but theres still a bit of heat on the backend from the booze.
M- The weakest part of the beer in my opinion. Fairly light bodied for a stout. The body is quite light actually, but the harsh roast and slight burn make you drink it slow like one. Good carbonation. Needs to be thicker though.
O- I layed this down for over a year, and it probably did some good for the booze flavor. I thought this was going to be much better actually, but it's still good. The flavors are bold but it needs more body.

Appearance: Pitch black and viscous, only a small bit of carbonation and a slight head but with good retention.
Smell: Slight smell of coffee and malt.
Taste: Powerful flavors of coffee,
Mouthfeel: Heavy but not overwhelming. Chewy. Hard to taste the alcohol.
Drinkability: The low carbonation and sweetness of the drink make it relatively drinkable, but with almost 11% alcohol, it's probably best to approach with caution.

Pours a jet black body beneath the thin tan head which quickly dissipates to leave a thin tan lacing.
Generous amounts of sweet and roasted aromas float from the glass including milk chocolate, dark fruits, roasted coffee and barley.
The flavor is fantastic featuring rich chocolate and roasted coffee with spicy notes developing as it warms as well as a boozy finish. This beer is impressive as it seems to take turns becoming roasted and sweet. The chocolate, cherry and coffee flavors play quite well together.
A robust body with medium carbonation and a chewy boozy finish highlight the mouthfeel.
This is a fantastic beer and a fine example of the style offering tons of character for the senses to explore.

On Tap at Zeno's Bar in State College, Pa. The beer was served in a snifter type of glass.
The appearance was jet black with a nice frothy head that lingered for a little while. The smell was rich in dark, dried fruits (plums and raisins) and had hints of roasted barley and chocolate. The flavor started out akin to soy sauce almost and quickly changed to a smooth and roasted chocolate grain flavor. There were hints of burnt, toasted grain and a nice hop bitter to balance and a very, very creamy and smooth mouthfeel. This is an awesome Imperial Stout and my first product that I have had from New Holland. I would love to try some more.
