Picked this one up a while ago and kind of forgot I had. It's a few months past the brewery fresh date but no worries it's a big stout so maybe it helped. Pours black with red/ruby highlights around the edges. Has a one finger light tan head that goes away almost as soon as the pour is done. The smell was roasted malts, chocolate, almost a hint of some alcohol. These smells were pretty dominate, nothing else seemed to be there to me except maybe a very small hint of coffee. The taste was very sweet, mainly some roasted malts and chocolate. Like in the smell a small hint of alcohol. Didn't seem very complex but I think that's good. I don't know if it was so sweet because it sat so long or if it's like that fresh as well. Mouthfeel was slightly above average. Upon the pour it looked to be thin but it was actually a little thick which surprised me but it was nice. At 8% ABV there was only a slight hint of alcohol and in no way did it take away anything from the beer, very well hidden. Overall a pretty good beer. It might not contend with the big RIS' but it's definitely something I'd pick up 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.
