Two-finger, beige head. Deep, dark brown color--no light passes, even on the edges. Good starting head, but it settles to rim bubbles. They do not leave much lace--a couple of streaks.

Burnt grain and alcohol are the main aromas from this beer. A bit of chalk and chocolate.

The flavor profile begins with the black patent malt up front. Think burnt toast. There's no creaminess to this beer--just pure coffee and Baker's chocolate. The body is thin like many in this style. The carbonation is high.

Too sweet for an imperial stout

Pours jet black with a mocha head.
Aroma is very interesting...initially quite sweet with molasses, candied fruit, dark chocolate, a little toasted caramel.

Taste definitely incorporates the sweet molasses flavor, but the bitterness overwhelms it rather than evening it out and it didn't add any complexity to it other than being overtly bitter. Mouthfeel was very light and watery, which I expected a heavier stout like creaminess.

The reviews on this are very good, so it's quite possible I came across a bad bottle.
The aroma was excellent, but past that, I couldn't finish the glass. It didn't blend well at all for me.
