4.5/5 rDev +2.3%
Pours a deep ebony color with a mocha head that leaves chinks of lacing.
Smells of deep roasted notes along with some sweetness.
Tastes of the deep roasted notes rounded out by some sweetness and earthy hops. Notes of coffee, chocolate, and molasses lead off with some dark brown sugar sweetness to it. Chocolate lingers on with some roasted and earthy bitterness rounding it out. Booze is present, but pleasant.
Chocolaty sweetness continues to linger through the finish.
Mouthfeel is full with a creamy amount of carbonation.
Overall, this is delicious and a must try for any big stout fan.

4.41/5 rDev +0.2%
750 ml bottle poured into a snifter glass.
A - Inky black with some mahogany hints - dark brown head that dissipates quickly. Does not appear to be strongly carbonated.
S - The aroma is complex - dark chocolate and coffee notes, along with some alcohol as well. Molasses seems to be in the mix as well.
T - Similar to the nose - the coffee notes seem to come through a bit more, and the bitterness is a bit pronounced. The alcohol is well blended and not overpowering.
M - Very smooth - glides right across the tongue.
O - Overall, this is a great Imperial stout - I'd be curious to taste the barrel aged version.
