Pours black with a quickly dissipating tan head. There are plenty of visible tiny bubbles that can be seen from the side of the glass. All that is left of the head is a ring of lace around the edge of the glass and there are visible alcohol legs. Some lacing is left on the side of the glass during consumption. The aroma of pumpkin and spices hits the nose. There's cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. I get some of that roasted malt, but the nose is pretty dominated by those pumpkin pie spices. I can't detect the alcohol in the nose. This beer still tastes like a stout. The dark roasted malt hits the mouth up front with the pumpkin and those spices really coming in after that. I also get that molasses and those dark chocolate and coffee flavors. The alcohol isn't very strong in the flavor despite being 10%, but it does have a nice warming feel on the way down. It does become more apparent, however, as the beer warms. The hops are also there to provide some back end bitterness and balance to this beer. This beer is full bodied without being too thick and moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel is smooth. It's a great sipping imperial stout. This is an excellent beer that is worth the hype. There's a reason this sells out quickly.
