Pours a deep opaque black with a razor-thin head. No lacing. Smells of dark chocolate. Tastes very boozy. Smokey with some chocolate notes. Mouthfeel dominated by searing alcohol. Overall the flavor just gets completely overwhelmed by alcohol. Not terrible by any means but I wouldn't get this again.

Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a St. Bernardus goblet at low altitude in NY. Surprised I haven't reviewed this one yet despite how many times I've had it before.

A: Pours an opaque dark brown with a thin, creamy mocha-colored head that fades away quickly.

S: Black chocolate is a very good description. This smells almost like a bar of dark chocolate with a bit of alcoholic heat in the background. Some faint molasses notes as it warms.

T: Unfortunately this one doesn't taste as good as it smells. Very bitter from start to finish -- reminds me of raw coffee grounds. The alcohol also comes through much more than expected. I remember enjoying this beer much more in the past, so perhaps I got a bad batch...

M: Full-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and a dry finish.

O: Definitely not one of my favorite imperial stouts. I doubt I'll revisit this one -- too many better options available.
