Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750ml bottle into a Chimay goblet. Bottled on date of 3/20/13. Let sit 1hour out of fridge.

A: Pitch black, no light escaping the body. Thin mocha head that recedes quickly. No significant lacing.

S: Coffee up front even after 6 months, dark chocolate and other sweet malts there as well.

T: Bitter coffee, dark and semi-sweet chocolates, toffee and caramel. Some alcohol flavor, but blends in nicely.

M: Creamier than I expected. Thick body with higher carb than usual for the style. Dry finish with tingly alcohol.

O: Thanks to dvmin98 for this trade. Great impy stout that I've been wanting to try for awhile. Didn't disappoint.
