Shared by huhzubendah.. Thanks Matt.

Pours a jet black with a one finger chocolate head. Good lacing on my goblet glass. The nose is coffee, malt, hops, and chocolate. Very nice, although I would like it stronger. Taste follows the same profile, with pine flavor really out front. Feel is medium, with a decent hop bite, and good carbonation. None of the 9.1% alcohol is evident. Overall, a good solid beer! Cheers!

A-Pours out an opaque,jet black body supporting a full inch of lasting,mocha foam that left gorgeous sheets of clingy lacing in it's wake.

S-Initially,lots of sweet chocolate that gave way to strong French roast coffee,burnt sugars and some slight dark fruit flavors(plum,raisin).

T-Tastes of dark chocolate,espresso beans,a slight hop bitterness to go along with slightly charred toast and some fruity alcohol notes.Finish is amazingly strong espresso flavors for a beer not actually brewed with coffee.

M-Great coffee and dark chocolate flavors with a small dose of citric hop bitterness.Almost reminiscent of an Espresso Romano.Maybe a tad thin would be my only knock.Really nice balance and drinkability though.

O-Real,real nice stout that I'm sorry I waited this long to try.

An aggressively bitter and roasted stout. Slightly thin mouthfeel but well carbonated. Tasted notes of caramel and coffee. That bitter flavor is just everywhere, up front and lingering afterward. Alcohol starts to sneak up on you halfway into the glass as the beer warms up. Better to take out of the fridge and let warm up. Flavor really opens up. Paired nicely with salami and cheese.

This is a very hoppy stout, so if you like that style of beer, than I think this will fit very well. It's not an overall huge stout, but has enough flavor and depth to not be wimpy. Alot of the other imperial stouts can be over the top in thickness, flavor, etc, this is not one of those. It is very smooth, clean and little to no alcohol in the taste or mouthfeel.

I would consider this a floral stout.
