Pours a medium thickness, very dark brown almost black, with a slightly off white two finger head.

I am immediately hit by a waft of roasted malts, fresh brewed coffee and some chocolate to note.

Sweet roasted malts and chocolate and perfectly balanced with a bitter coffee profile that cuts smooth like butter through the sweetness upfront.

Medium thickness, not quite what I was looking for but nice and smooth nonetheless.

Overall this is an excellent showing from Great Lakes, another fantastic imperial stout to keep my eyes open for.
