Appearance - Pours near black, revealing a deep cordovan brown color when held against light. Tan, 2 finger head which displays good retention, then gives way to a broken layer of suds across the surface. Small, spotty lacing with poor stick.
Smell - More jammy than your typical stout, lending to strong notes of black cherry, plum, grape and even a bit of black currant. Subtle hints of roasted malt and chocolate, but they come through very faint.
Taste - Follows the nose; very fruity and jammy dominant throughout before giving way to a bitter coffee, light chocolate finish. Nondescript notes of dark fruit sweetness are the first thing to hit the tongue, followed by a light mocha character. Black cherry and plum emerge mid-taste, along with touches of black currant and faint anise. Changes in the finish, with developing flavors of coffee and dark chocolate that fade into the finish.
Mouthfeel - Full bodied with fair carbonation, then a silky finish.
Overall - A very fruity, jammy stout. Red wine lovers might like this a lot. Just enough coffee / roasted malt bitterness on the back end to keep itself close to the style. Maybe a beer I'd go to once or twice a year, though if I'm being honest, there are impys for less that I'd rather go with. Great beer, all the same.

Pours black as night with a nice head. Scents are roasted malt and a bit of chocolate. Somewhat burnt, which brings the score down. Taste is similar to smell but with a good deal of hops. Not excessive but more than I'd like. Smooth, creamy mouthfeel yet more carbonated than most in the style. A solid imperial stout.
