Served from a 22 oz bomber into a goblet.

A - Color is an extremely dark brown, but not quite black; it lets no light through. The head is light tan and not thick, even on initial pour. It consists mainly of a thick ring along the glass but only the thinnest layer on the beer's surface. Good lacing.

S - Great bready malt aromas. Molasses, plums, prunes. Spices, wet tobacco and alcohol in the finish. Moderately complex aromas.

T - Spicy, bready malt, like a good rye loaf. Strong earthy hops; chocolate, plums, prunes, molasses. Tobacco, slight smoke, rum. Complex.

M - Thick body. High hops bitterness. Slight alcohol burn. Low carbonation.

O - This is a big, assertive imperial stout, but it is not overly complex. A good sipping beer, but not among the best.

Pours a black dark ruby notes around the bottom when held to the light. Head is dark tan thumb sized falls slow to scum some pretty decent lace left behind.

Aroma is roasted malts big chocolate notes light dark fruit hints. Pretty one sided nose not bad but not overly complex.

Taste is big chocolate coming out of the roasted malts. Stays chocolate for quite a while then finish adds some dark fruit notes, anise hints, light alcohol burn that all mingles with some smokey earth notes.

Mouthfeel is big and smooth with fairly smooth carbonation levels.

Overall not a bad big stout, pretty one sided but worth a try and not overly pricey.
