A- at first, the dark, tan cappuccino colored head is hesitant to form but as the snifter fills up, foam cascades to the surface of this this viscous brew. Sadly, it hastily diminishes to a thin soapy ring. Lace is spotty and minimal. The body is so think and black that it looks like a bowl of melted dark chocolate.

S- insane and powerful dark chocolate aroma. Cocoa, chocolate ice cream, chocolate syrup, everything chcocolate. And quality chocolate at that. There's a black roasted coffee smokiness nestled in the background. Hops are hidden, or slightly earthy at most. This one solely focuses on the chcocolate. Awesome.

T- this is just freakin bonkers. Up front it's chocolate ice cream. 80% cacao. Hot fudge sundae. Devils food cake. However it can be described as a wholly holy chocolate elixir would be appropriate. The flavor transition is easily broken down into 3 parts. First is just a mouthful of melted chocolate and nothing else. Just high quality chocolate. Abruptly, it shifts gears to huge roasted malt character with espresso and bittersweet cocoa, damp wood, stone, soil, mild smoke, and peppery spice. As the malt fades, hops move in and mesh with the roasted bitterness to form an herbal, rustic, earthy and lasting bittersweet finish.

MF- smoothly grainy particle chocolate feel. Like its big and rich and smooth and creamy but it's not totally liquid. You can feel the molecules and shit. Coating coffee cocoa feel on the cheeks. Some hop oil feel too. Carbonation? Who even cares about that now?? It's understated and modest, quiet and only preset as a tiny little tickle. Exactly as it should be.

D- completely imperceptible alcohol makes this one a real monster. I mean, I'm throwin this bottle down like a seventeen year old girl on her first mudslide. As a matter of fact, I think the chocolate hides the booze in the same way ice cream masks the vodka in that mudslide. Now I'm back on the mothership. Such concentrated flavor in this beer you would have to eat it with... Idk probly just strawberries, cream and vanilla. This one without a doubt rewrites the book on imperial chocolate stout.

From 22 oz bottle. Poured in long stem St Feuillien glass.
Big brown head with various size bubbles...some lacing beginning early.
Color: Mahogany...dark.
Aroma of molten chocolate cake...rich, sweet, cocoa, figs, plum, dark chocolate, must be ... oh, oh, oh, Madagascan vanilla. Giant aroma from start to finish.
Flavors of dark sweet and bitter chocolates, tropical pepper, subtle touches of various tropical fruits, some noticeable alcohol punch. Oooh...punch me again ~~~
Oh Oh...don't these guys make some great brews, despite a bitter finish or something funky, this is nice.
Sometimes they make the mother lode, trend setter, totally admirable brew, as I might say this and the Pumking are..oh oh...
Where were we? Malt, malt, malt...must be expensive to make these beers...like the big fruity New Glarus, they don't hold off on adding delicious ingredients, in this case, malty, chocolate bodaciousness. Oh yeah....ayieee~!!!
