A- Pours like a classic imperial stout with a very inky texture and a toffee head that sits atop everything else. The body is not as thick as some however, which would have set the look over the top.
S- Deep complex smell with malts chocolate and licorice.
M-Smooth/creamy, but not too thick to overwhelm. The perfect feel to the taste.
T/O Holy crap!! Honestly this beer swept me off my feet. The flavor profile is absolutely monstrous. Each sip bounces between delicious malts/chocolate/coffee/licorice/plum? other deep fruits/alcohol and the occasional bit of strawberry. More amazingly, the profile is remarkably balanced making each and every sip a new exploration in flavor. I can't believe it has taken me so long to find this!
