Fills the tulip with an absolute jet black body and a creamy and dense tan head. A healthy amount of sticky lace leaves rings around the glass.
Coffee is right up front on the nose. A fair amount of brown sugar and caramel sweetness goes along with this. Surprisingly not as roasty as expected.
First sip is packed full of flavor with the coffee really coming through and paired up with a heavy amount of roasty/toasty malt goodness. Pleasantly sweet as the aroma had suggested.
Thick and a bit chewy on the mouthfeel. Not much heat coming from the alcohol as its pretty well disguised. Overall, a truly exceptional imperial stout but one thats hard to pull the trigger on at $15+ per bottle.
