This is such a reliable stout. Consistent through the years this pours a dark dark brown with a light mocha head. Smells roasty and of dark chocolate and coffee beans. Slight bourbon alcohol warming on the finish. Love thus stout, great value at 8.99 a four pack.

A: Opaque black with a small mocha head.
S: On the nose,mainly toasted malts, chocolate, nuts, vanilla and ashes.
T: Palate on chocolate, ocffee, molasses. Quite sweet and rich. Light bitterness on the aftertaste, a bit herbal.
M: Medium bodied, slightly oily, a bit sticky. The alcohol can be felt.
O; An imperial stout quite classic, relatively easy to drink, but without a real uniqueness.
