Poured dark, nearly opaque with thick, light tan head and thick lacing. Looks like a classic stout. Smell is burnt coffee and chocolate. I didn't discern the smell of any fruit or other sweet flavor. Taste emphasizes the coffee but there is a bitter hoppiness. I've read other reviews but I'm not tasting any dark fruit. You can taste the alcohol but at 9% it's not overwhelming. Good creamy mouth feel. Overall, this is a very good imperial stout but I'm missing the dark fruit.

I mean...I like stouts and all. And I like this one. But I was hoping for a thicker, blacker, stouter stout. Uhh what?? Didn't hear me?? Did I stouter??
