Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours an almost pitch black color with a one finger of tan colored head. The head fades rather fast, leaving a relatively light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is quite heavy of a chocolate smell mixed with some lighter aromas of roasted malt and coffee. There is a decent sum of a caramel, molasses, and brown sugar smell as well along with some lighter aromas of a more earthy nature. Overall the aroma is quite sweet, dessert like, and robust.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice roasty malt taste with a strong showing of sweeter flavors of molasses and brown sugar as well as a sweeter chocolate flavor. These flavors create a base taste for the brew and remain till then end. As the taste advances some flavors of coffee and more roast come to the tongue, with these being joined by a little bit of a licorice taste. Some earthy and grassy hop flavors as well as a hit of alcohol come to the tongue at the very end, leaving a warmingly semi-sweet roasted flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is thick and creamy with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the rich dark, sweeter, and boozy flavors of the brew the feel is quite nice and creates a very mouth coating feel which accentuates the nice warming and dark flavors well.

Overall – A nice drinking stout with a thick and sweet, but roasty and boozy taste. A pretty nice imperial overall, and one to try if you get a chance.

Great imperial stout that hits home hard with strong, malty tastes, but lets more fruity flavors linger as the beer continues to age.
