750ML bottle, with notes on the label about being brewed with ryan bros coffee. This is as dark as it gets, definatly has the old motor oil look to it. Not much carbonation or head to be seen, even with an aggresive pour that was trying to wake it up. The aroma coming of this beer is nice with coffee, chocolate and dark fruits being at that front and notes of slight sweetness and alcohol are present as well. The taste starts with a strong coffee and alcohol flavor that gives way to smooth chocolate and nutty tones. Very rich and complex in flavor with more flavors standing out as it warms. At 12% it hides mopst the alcohol well, you can definatly taste it but it adds to the overall flavor. The mouthfeel is a medium body, definatly thinner than I would expect from such a large imperial stout. Very drinkable considering the alcohol the is present. A excellent all around brew that has a great complex taste. I will lay my other bottle down for atleast a year before trying it to see what other flavors may emerge.
