Pours thick, very dark brown, with little carbonation. I had to give it a pretty hard pour to produce a little mocha colored head, but that dissipated quickly, leaving little to no lace. Again, looks pretty thick.
Smells of dark fruits, damp vegetables and roasted malts. The coffee comes through not as coffee per se, but more like a nondescript dark, bitter smell. Fruit dominates the nose much more than your typical coffee stout.
On the palate, dark, sweet fruit hits first, followed by chocolate and rich, smooth espresso. Not as complex as some imperial stouts, but a palate-pleaser nonetheless. Booze is pretty well hidden, revealing itself only in a little dry, slightly minty astringency.
Mouthfeel is full, soft and round. Though not as big and full as the viscous pour would lead you to believe. Again, not a luxurious as some, but definitely fits the imperial stout bill. Nice, lasting chocolate bitterness.
Overall, this is a big, tasty stout that packs a punch. A nice pairing of sweet, dark fruit and bitter chocolate espresso flavors.

Yes. This is outstanding and my favorite style of beer. Rich in flavor and aroma, dark roast coffee. Pretty damn bitter and finishes like chocolate cake, with the coffee always present and really delicious. Almost on the level of Wake n Bake. Amazing.
Serving type: on-tap
