This review is written on a post tasting basis but will be revisited/edited when the chance comes by

A - Tapped a jet black color with a thin brown head into a large snifter glass (4)

S - Luscious nose of roasted malts, coffee and chocolates (4)

T - Well-balanced flavors of roasted malts, caramel sweetness, chocolate and coffee all nicely blended together with alcohol; very delectable and solid flavors on the whole and one of the better Imperial Stouts I've tried (5)

M - Full-bodied thickness with a creamy texture going down smooth and easy (4.5)

D - Solid flavors and feel yet such an easy drinking stout at 10% ABV (4.5)

This is on my revisit list for sure. I had not reviewed it on the spot but I'm sure I prefer this to Baird's Dark Sky Imperial Stout and Minoh's Imperial Stout
