Deep mahogany in color with aromas of roasted coffee, molasses and dark chocolate. Subtly hopped, making it astonishingly smooth and easy drinking for such a big beer.

I usually am a fan of heavy Seas but not this one! Not a fan. Too bitter and thin and just not good flavor.

Not a big stout drinker. This beer is obviously really dark. Has a genuine smell to it. I've had worse beers in my life so this wasn't so bad for not being a stout drinker.

App: pours deep dark brown with substantial tan head that resolves quickly to fine lacing
Smell: roasted malt, cocoa, coffee and a tad smoky
Taste: malt forward, bittersweet cocoa, a hint of salt at mid taste with a smoked/leathery endnote and clean finish
Mouthfeel: medium to full body, hint of carbonation keeps the malt from becoming syrupy, palate cleansing
Overall: for the price point, this is one of the best imperial stouts. Another hit from Heavy Seas – I’ll definitely add to my rotation of winter libations!

Great imperial stout. Big fan of the style. Very smoky / roasted flavor and very heavy overall as.a stout should be. Definitely not a session but perfect for cold winter days at home.

Roast malt, sweet cocoa, coffee grounds, and a hint of soy form the rich, malt dominant aroma.

Flavor reveals roast malt and coffee at the base, with a fairly sweet toasted, chocolatey malt backbone, finishing a touch bitter. There's a bit of an acrid character, which kills the goodness. Dark cherry emerges as it warms.

Great stout from Heavy Seas! Lots of flavor, toasty, chocolate, coffee, and a hint of tobacco.
