Best by Jan. 2013; Poured in a snifter.
A - 1/2" of light tan, frothy head that thins out very fast; Pitch black appearance; Tiny bits of carbonation bubbles flowing up the sides of the glass; Pretty good streaks of lacing
S - Not a very strong aroma; Roasty, chocolatey, and a little bit of sugary characteristics
T - The taste is a bit different from the nose; Smooth, mellow chocolate with a bit of vanilla beans and sweet milky flavors; Faint citrus hops come through in the beginning of the taste, but are pushed aside quickly; The taste reminded me of cola-like flavors for a second or two; Roasty qualities are very subdued here; Touch of alcohol towards the end of the taste
M - Pretty good amount of very fine and zesty carbonation; Velvety smooth mouthfeel after the carbonation subsides; A bit above medium bodied
O - This is a very delicious beer that fits into the lower end of the RIS spectrum. It was a bit sweeter and lighter than I was expecting, but had a nice taste with a good dose of chocolate. As smooth and easy drinking as this beer was, it's one that I'd certainly like to try again.

Pours a near black color with a slight, slight hue of red. Very little head to speak of; leaves a slight trace of lacing along the glass as you finish. The smell is strongest with hints of chocolate, coffee, raisins; the taste is very sweet, slightly grainy, typical carbonation for a stout with this high a ABV. Very sweet finish. Overall, a good imperial stout for the price.
