Burnt and roasted notes but they eventually get overwhelmed by too much sweetness. It as if someone dumped extra sugar into the beer. I had this problem with Bad Elmer's Porter so it seems to be a running error on the part of Upland.

Russian imperial stout no doubt. But left me a little underwhelmed. Abv at 10% was hidden indeed, but lacking bite on the back end. Very dark, little head present with sandy color. Malty-ish with hints of cocoa.
