Had in a pub glass at Victory's Pub
A-One of the blackest beers I have seen, topped by a thick head that reminded me of cappucino; Excellent retention and lacing.
S-A little citrus hop, along with a nice bit of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. A little subdued compared to others of the style, but nicely balanced..
T-Complex malt character, with coffee, chocolate, molasses and a nice earthiness. A bit more hop than expected breaks through, along with a hint of citrus. Nicely balances the beer. A little cherry and chocolate subsides to a dry roasted malt finish.
M-Nice mouthfeel. This is a thick, smooth beer that coats your mouth. A nice level of carbonation plays with the palate. Also a pleasant bit of alcohol warmth.
This is a great beer and goes down easy for the abv. Everyone should give this a try. One of my favorites.

Poured very flat with little head. Cut to the chase, I just don't enjoy these heavier/stronger stouts. It's not the higher ALC but an unpleasant aftertaste. I read that imperial stouts were originally exported to Russia. That may account for the rumors of Russian women being overly hairy and their success as weight lifters. I'll settle for a good dry Irish stout or oatmeal stout any day. They are just so smooth when compared to imperials. Kind of like filing your fingernails with a fine emery board rather than a wood rasp.
