Finally found this beer on tap at Appalachian Vintner (Asheville); hard to find considering that I live in the Carolinas not so far from the brewery.

Black and opaque with a fairly durable tan head that leaves streaks of sticky lacing on the glass.

Coffee, chocolate and dark roasted malts in the nose. Sightly floral too.

A bit of hops show up upon tasting, putting a spicy tome on the chocolate and dark malt base. Sweet up front, balanced mid-taste, and mild/moderate bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. The aftertaste from this very flavorful ale is quite durable and features both chocolate and malts.

O: slightly disappointing, but very high expectations, so clearly recommended.

Pours an opaque black body beneath the rich, mocha head, which dissolves to leave a scattered lacing about the glass.

As advertised, the aromas are generous in cocoa, espresso, and molasses. This Imperial Stout is sweeter than roasted and also offers a touch of sweet, dark fruit.

The dark fruit and molasses are even more pronounced on the palate and plays nicely with the cocoa as the espresso appears to take a back seat. Having four years of ago on it, my guess this is a bit boozier than it would have been in the first year or so.

Medium to fuller in body with medium carbonation and a semi-boozy, semi-sweet finish that really coats the palate.

This beer did not disappoint. A great Imperial Stout, although more on the sweet chocolate and fruit than roasted side, it still packs a punch.
