Poured on tap at Liberty Tap Room in Columbia, SC.
A: Body is pure black but there is some faint light coming in on the edges. Dark tan head with OK retention.
S: Heavy coffee, roasty note here with not much chocolate to be found. Smoky aroma in there with some char and anise. Surprisingly not really all that chocolatey.
T: Much like the smell: not much chocolate to be found here, but a LOT of roasted coffee and some smoky notes laced in there. Some mocha as it warms which might lend some cred to the chocolate name, but overall more coffee. Some bakers chocolate as it warms more, but no sweetness to be found. Definitely an imperial stout rather than a chocolate stout.
Overall: As a RIS, pretty good. I can see this being a good one to age, but on tap it was pretty tasty. I would have liked to see some more chocolate in here as it was my dessert beer, but good stuff overall.
Serving type: on-tap
