Pours with medium mocha head. As expected, the color is dark. It has initial smell of a crisp flowery chocolate. This is a very drinkable stout. It is smooth and living up to the name as the flavor dwells in a very pleasant aftertaste of vanilla and malt. Honestly, this is one of the best stouts I've had in a long time. Kudos to Greenman Brewery. I will definitely be drinking more from them soon. I feel honored to have had the chance to drink this rare brew. Thanks goes to my friend Molly for the present.

12 oz single bottled 1/27/16 poured into a tulip.

A - Dark, pitch black with a one finger dark tan head that moves immediately to a thin lace

S - Robust chocolate and dark fruit, slight touch of anise. Very inviting.

T - Taste follows the nose, except the coffee flavors are much more apparent and in the mix. I am detecting some wood notes, along with some nut and vanilla.

M - Carbonation is medium low, mouthfeel is full, but velvety/creamy at times.

O - Been a fan of the brewery for a while, so it was good to see something other than ESB and the Porter make it to the area. This one does not dissapoint.

Beer pours out black with a mocha head and tight lacing. Very viscous and thick.

I get a lot of chocolate, some roasted malts and a bunch of prune/currant undertones. It smells great, but pick up more hops than I expected.

Taste is a great blend of chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, cream, roasted malt, a little bit of char at the end keeps this from being a 5.

It has a thicker feel to me, but light enough to keep it from being overly rich, carbonation is ample for the style.

Overall, this was very enjoyable and a great first effort at bottling.

Very good imperial. A little boozy but very tasty and a great mouth feel. Roasty and creamy.
