On tap. Served in a goblet 3/8/2015.

A- Dark black body, two finger brown head that retains quite nicely, leaving a thick collar that sticks around a while. No lacing.

S- A bit of bitter dark chocolate, cocoa, a little bit of malt sweetness, earthy bitterness. Not much else.

F- Mildly bitter charred malt, cocoa, milk chocolate sweetness, a bit of coffee, some dark chocolate. Altogether this is a very boring profile that doesn't seem to come together quite right here.

M- Medium bodied, good carbonation, decent bitterness, but I didn't find the flavour or depth to be interesting enough to finish the whole glass.

O- Meh.

I have to be honest, I expected a better product than this. The pour and look to the beer was about the best part. It looked nice and dark as an imperial stout should. The aroma was not very strong and smelled of sweet prunes. That's exactly what the taste also put forth... Prunes. I don't know why, but I caught a lot of sweet prunes and almost nothing more. The taste is rather boring. I did get the big warming character of a higher alcohol beer, but I just thought overall it lacked some of the much needed elements to be a good imperial stout.

An excellent imperial stout from Stevens Point. Pours dark as midnight with medium tan head
and lots of nice lacing. Aroma of fudge, roasted grains, toffee, and light coffee. Taste is sweet
malts up front with almost a milk stout like quality. Lot's of chocolate and a light bittering
taste to the back as well as the aftertaste. An excellent sipper with alcoholic warmth coming
through on the finish with a smooth almost thick buttery mouthfeel. Almost a milk stout by
sweetness, but still VERY nice.
