Appearance: Black and a nice tannish head. Exactly as I’d expect from an Imperial Stout.
Smell: A good amount of coffee in the nose.
Taste: I got a lot of coffee in the first taste and then some chocolate sweetness came though. Subtle balance.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied that wish was more full bodied.
Drinkability: Smooth and tasty.

Whoa, killer brew. Just shy of perfect, and those imperfections are just niggles. Little bit boozy, but hey, it's an imp stout... Looks, smells, tastes, fabulous. Complex, yet just a great classic beer of its style. Faultless finish. Can't wait to return to the brewpub in San Diego.

Pours opaque black with a thin khaki head that quickly disappears completely and leaves very faint spots of lace.
Smell is a delicious balance of sweet chocolate, bitter black coffee and dark malt.
Taste is black coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt.
Texture is on the heavy side of medium bodied with low carbonation.
A solid imperial stout with strong coffee and cocoa flavors.
