22 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, toast, nuttiness, light char, light raisin, and roast/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark, roast, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, caramel, toffee, toast, nuttiness, light char, light raisin, and roast/toasted earthiness. Fair amount of roast/coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roast, caramel, toffee, toast, nuttiness, light char/raisin, and roast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Very nice robustness and complexity of dark, roast, and bready malt flavors; with a nice malt bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, moderately creamy, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice imperial stout. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark, roast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Momma said that if you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all. Simply not my cup of tea, or beer as the case may be. The one thing I will say is that it has a wonderful aroma and the only reason I am saying more is because it is required...
