Deep ebony hued this stout poured with an exceptionally thick light brown head that had very good lacing.

The nose is just weak. Notes of toasted malt, maybe chocolate and coffee but nothing off putting.

The nose does not do the flavor justice as its creamy, chocolatey, cocoa powdered and toasty. The finish is a strong roasted coffee that lingers on the tongue for quite a while.

The feel is dry yet has a marshmallow cream silkiness. Very nicely done as its a high gravity beer, 11.5 ABV, yet yields no evidence of such.

I was a set up to be disappointed when I smelled it but it delivered well where it counts.

poured 22oz bottle into chalice.

A - It is obsidian with only a slight dark brown on the very edge of my glass. A 1 finger tan head has nice retention and leaves behind very nice lacing.

S - Roasted malts, bakers and milk chocolate. There are also notes of coffee, dark fruit, maybe raisins and sorghum?

T - The flavors are well put together, yielding notes of dark roasted malt, raisins, bakers chocolate and rich milk chocolate. This is a bit sweeter than bitter and I love it! No need to age.

M - Rather standard medium body with normal carbonation.

O - A nice imperial stout that hits all the good notes. It is quite enjoyable and I recommend picking one up, maybe two.
