Pours a motor-oil black color with a brown one-finger head into my fluted glass. Pretty much the proper color.

Aroma is full of vanilla, caramel and cream in the nose. Very interesting. Only a whiff of chocolate.

Taste is sweet with caramel, vanilla and cream flavors mingling in the mouth, followed by a roasted coffee and chocolate feel in the middle. Somewhat subdued, never overpowering.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering flavors mentioned above. Carbonation is a bit high and only a bit of alcohol warmth shows up. Otherwise, pretty easy-drinking for the flavors in it.

I was expecting something creamier but this stout has an interesting mix of flavors. It tends to get better as it warms up though. Worth a try at least once but ST makes better boundary-pushing imperial beers (Choklat for example).

Poured from a bomber into a snifter.

A - Largely consistent with what others have said regarding color and lacing.

S - Top notch with huge bouquet of vanilla, butterscotch, toffee, and caramel. What else can you say. Intoxicating smell that makes you want to dive in.

T - Sweet no doubt but I was happy that it did not taste artificially sweet in any way. For me, I volleyed back and forth between the vanilla bean, butterscotch, and caramel shots of flavor.

M - Great mouthfeel with the perfect blend of carbonation. I actually liked this one a little more on the colder side than when it warmed although I am sure I will be on the minority of this one.

D - Hides the alcohol like the better beers do. Maybe not a beer that you can drink all night because of the intense flavor, but you could certainly kid yourself from the ABV side into thinking that you could.

Another winner in the series. ST definitely hits a home run here after a little bit of a letdown for those who thought that the Imperial Cherry Saison should have had bolder cherry tones. Upward and onward to Pumpking!
