It was our annual trip to Tampa...the night before THE BUCKEYE CRUISE AGAINST CANCER!!!! The better half and I walked a couple of blocks down from our hotel and found a wonderful sport to taste numerous different brews. The third beer I tried, thank to the suggestion of our server...was Southern Tier's Imperial Blaxk Ale...again another nice suggestion!!! This was a quite nice beer!! The color was...black with creamy white head. The nose had a subtle hop and definite roast/coffee. This of course fed into the taste of the beer which was full body (prbably cuz of high ABV), with a great balance of hop, molassis, malt, and coffee. I could drink maybe four of these....then would have to wave the white flag!!!!

Bomber poured into a stout glass.
The beer pours midnight black with a thick khaki colored head. Good lacing.
I get coffee and espresso, vanilla, and dark fruits on the nose. Almost smells similar to a belgian quad with the dark fruit.
Taste is good. Mild carbonation and vanilla at first. That mellows into a dark fruit taste that continues on the finish. Has a good maltiness as well.
Thick feeling in the mouth. Kind of creamy.
Overall a very good beer. I wasn't expecting the dark fruit, but I liked it.

Poured from bottle into DFH signature glass.
Aroma is dry and roasty. Some raisin and a little booze.
Taste is similar. It is not a porter, not a stout, but similar. The mouthfeel is great with a clean aftertaste that is slightly dry but flavorful. Tastes a couple abv less than it is at 9%.
Overall another winner from ST. Will definitely be getting again.
