Poured from a bottle, my token good beer from my Bevmo mystery box, was a fairly pleasant experience. Dark chocolate brown, but not quite black in color; with a thin hear and visible carbonation. Not as visibly massive as its brethren.

Dark, heavy aroma consisting of toffee, dark chocolate, bourbon barrel aging, syrupy prunes, dates, a little bit of fig. The palate is boldly flavored with thick bourbon and coffee, underlying alcohol cutting through thick chewy layers of malt. Flavor opens up nicely to a lovely hoppy pine taste that adds an herbal quality. Chewy without being too heavy, it's a challenge for novice beer drinkers, but not the best imperial stout on the market. Still, a very good beer with a taste with some dessert.

12oz poured in to a chimay glass

Deep black and oily with a thick fluffy 2cm dark brown head. Nice retention.

Aromas of rich dark cocoa, herbal hop notes and charcoal. There's an air of milky vanilla aswell.

The flavours are more of the same, some sweet milky chocolate and a considerable hoppy pine contribution. On the back end there's a nice toasted malty bitterness. No hint of the alcohol.

Mouthfeel is rich and full, low carbonation - pretty standard for the style.

This is nice imperial stout, not much wow factor, but enjoyable nonetheless.
