Served cold, in a pint glass
Appear: Poured a somewhat sluggish, somewhat rocky head. Very very dark beer, with slow, almost nonexistant bubbles rising.
Smell: Nice sweet roasted malt first off. Smells more like a milk stout than an imperial stout, actually. I expect a bit more hops in this style, but it still smells delicious.
Taste: Not as strong as an imperial stout should be. Nicely roasted flavor. A little alcohol, but not as apparent as its 8% would suggest. Sweetness fades kinda quickly, leaving a lingering bitterness, and something like burnt toast. Tastes great, and I would give it a higher rating here, but its just not quite right for the style. Well balanced, however.
Mouthfeel: Thick, heavy, coating.. nice. A little astringent, however.
Drinkability: Quite drinkable despite the high alcohol. I like this beer, and wish my rating was higher, but it just doesn't fit the billing for an imperial stout to me.

12oz single picked up at Northbridge Pig before it closed. Poured into a tulip glass -
A: Black-brown, opaque pour; mocha head - one finger; good retention leaves a few specks of lace.
S: Milk chocolate; cocoa; sweet, roasted malt aroma.
T: Dark chocolate; coffee; fair level of hop bitterness; some smoked malt provides and extra layer of flavor; has a bit of a grapey aftertaste - reminiscent of DFH Worldwide Stout - obviously on a MUCH smaller scale.
M: Medium body; high carbonation; dry finish; feel seems a little light, though.
O: A nice stout; drinkable; tasty, with a good aroma, too; glad I tried it.
