Pours thick and black with very little head despite a very vigorous pour. What does show up disappears quickly, leaving a mere ring of light tan and a scattering of broken lace.
Smell is very toasty, almost burnt, malts, unsweetened chocolate, faint toffee and an ashy note (probably from the malts).
Taste is rich with heavily roasted malt, faint hops, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, some whiskey. Obviously, with this style, time for warming almost always proves beneficial and in this case that holds true.
Pretty damned smooth with a definite linger but not to the point of being cloying. Light, almost watery, up front but it get fairly full bodied mid and finish where it ends dry. Somewhat warming and the ashyness really falls away. Put this in a barrel and I expect it'll be push 4.5.

Dark mahogany, cola-colored on the pour and opaque black in the glass. Creamy looking, light khaki head with tiny carbonation bubbles streaming up. On the nose, I get mostly roasted malts, creamy latte, a nutty sweetness, and earthy hops. Mouth feel is fairly thin, more like a porter. Unsweetened chocolate, roast bitterness, and earthy hops come through on the taste.

This is an exceptional Dry Stout. Slightly underrated...definitely deserves a 90+ rating.

I thought this was delicious. Big imperials seem to be everyone's favorite but this has all of the abv with more drinkability. Would buy again.
