Big, bold, beautiful...this is one of the most staggering Imperial Stout's I have ever experienced. These guy know what they're doing and they will give the British a run for their money as far as this style is concerned.

A great stoudt, no doubt. Alcohol content is high, but doesn't dominate the taste at all. This one has everything a stoudt lover looks for.

Pours black with a semi-thick head. Smells of black malt and dark fruit with a noticeable hop aroma. The taste is huge and complex with a larger hop presence than most Imperial Stouts but it is very well balanced. The finish has a nice hint of espresso.

I can't understand some of the low ratings.

Take it from someone who drinks stouts almost exclusively:
This is a spectacular Imperial Stout - One of the best that I have ever had.

Just happened to see this on the shelf at a local beverage supply outlet. I have always enjoyed the Imperial Stouts out there although there are not many. The first thing I noticed upon popping off the cap was the unbelievable aroma coming from the bottle. If I had to smell this blind folded I would have guessed it was some sort of coffee/chocolate (mocha) style ice cream soda. The beer poured thick and black with a very dark head. The first sip of this brew floored me. It did not taste like I had anticipated. My long description would be a Hopped Chocolate malted coffee espresso deluxe with the essence of roasted almonds served in a chestnut wooden mug!! WOW!! The finish is smooth with a hint of bitterness that disappears very quickly from the tip of your tongue to the back of the throat. Carbonation is perfectly balanced because of the initial hoppyness experienced upon contact. I think this beer would even be enjoyed by those who typically don't drink this style. If you ever see this, try it. I could drink this every day if it wasn't so potent at 9.2% abvr. I Love this one and will try out the remaining four bottles during this years Holiday season. I am sure it will age very well.
