3.9/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a snifter.

A- This fine imperial stout pours a nice light black color which lets just a bit of light through. It leaves a nice 2 finger head which settles down to a 1 finger head, then lingers to a slight coating from the midway point to the end.

S- Smell was of roasted malts, faint chocolate, and even a bit of french roast coffee. Not as aromatic as I had expected, but good none the less.

T- Great taste in this imperial stout. Creamy chocolate and toasted malts, faint coffee and wood notes, with a nice lingering bitterness on the back of the palate that isn't too strong or overbearing.

M- Mouthfeel is excellent. Perfectly carbonated for this style. Not heavily carbonated, but just enough to be the perfect mouthfeel. Thick, rich, and smoooth. A brew that lingers on my palate for minutes and leaves an oh so good aftertaste.

D- Drinkability is above average. The smoothness combined with the perfect carbonation and excellent flavors make this a brew I could easily drink 3 or 4 of in a night.

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

12 oz bottle. Pours black with tall, long lasting, creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, toast, cinnamon – apple pie, dark fruit, chocolate and alcohol. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of roasted malt, chocolate, brown sugar, plums, black current, chocolate, charcoal and herbal hops. Finish is long and dry. Complex, delicious RIS.
