Appearance: Pours a nearly opaque but brilliant black under a 1” lacy tan head. Smell: Coffee and chocolate aromas with some dark sugars. Taste: Starts very creamy with some dark dried fruit, coffee and chocolate with some light caramel notes and grain and finishes with a roasty dark chocolate bitterness. Mouthfeel: Creamy, satiating full bodied with very fine soft carbonation. Overall: a very drinkable Imperial Stout with a nice balance between roast and sweet malt flavors.

Pours a very dark brown with ruby highlights and a dark tan head.
Great aroma with lots of dark chocolate, licorice and coffee. Maybe just a hint of fruit?
Big roast coffee and dark chocolate taste and a lingering and drying bitter finish. A bit of char in the background as well.
Mouth is a bit thin for an imperial stout.
Overall, very tasty.

poured 12oz bottle into chalice.

A - Dark coffee, almost black with a 1 finger tan head. Thin cap and spatters of lacing.

S - Rich roasted malts, espresso, bitter chocolate, and caramel. Some earthy hops round out the pleasant aroma.

T - A good amount of milk and bitter chocolate to go along with a rich espresso. Roasted malts with sweet caramel and some earthy hop flavors.

M - On the thinner side of medium bodied with good carbonation.

O - Revisited this and my palate changed to where I enjoy it. I think the bitter stout fooled me many years ago.

L: Black, nearly opaque with some ruby light penetrating at the base. Huge, fluffy tan head from an aggressive pour. Quickly dissipated to about a finger's width.
S: Sweet chocolate, tobacco, caramel. A little coffee. Nothing too overwhelming. Slight licorice.
T: Bitter, roasted malt. Almost sour/salty up front. Sharp smoke, like the smell of fresh wood shavings. Tastes like drinking coffee in a woodshop. Lingering smokey aftertaste.
F: Surprisingly thin. Very slight oily feel with a clean dry finish and little coating.
O: The last imperial stout I had was Ten FIDY, so this seemed very simple and straightforward. The mouthfeel was underwhelming, but everything else is quite nice. Very smooth going down. Not nearly as good as Ten FIDY or Expedition, but much more affordable.

Pours a deep dark brown and looks black in the glass. I initially thought it might be a touch thin upon pouring. This fear was completely without merit. Nice little ring of bubbles leaves just a bit of lace here and there. Flavor is very dark roast. Touch of sweetness, almost getting to milk stout territory, but it works great. Brings out the chocolate elements. Full side of medium bodied. It works very well for this beer. Long, lingering aftertaste that is oddly clean. Excellent beer, and a bonus with the relatively low ABV for an imperial.

Great flavor profile and mouthfeel. Lake head on the pour and doesn't look great in a glass, but the taste is spot on
