It looks like a soda when pouring. It's a very dark, and thick looking beer. The head last long, and it's very effective.
This Imperial Stout lived up to the hype for me. It wasn't playing on to many notes. It hit the right amount of smoke, and chocolate notes. I taste some Almond as well.

North Coast doesn't disappoint much, if at all. When it comes to stouts. This one is in my top 5.
