On draft at Pizzeria Paradiso in Dupont Circle.

A: Black with brownish edges. Tan head slowly fades but leaves an absolute ton of lacing.

S: Coffee, coffee, coffee. All about coffee. In a good way.

T: Even more coffee. A hint of chocolate, which I kind of struggle to detect. Finishes fairly dry.

M: Thick and creamy.

D: Amazing. I'd have this for breakfast any time. Not to mention lunch, dinner, and dessert.

12oz bottle, poured into a chalice.

A - Poured a very dark brown, nearly black. Not even a finger of head.

S - Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. Slight notes of coffee and oats.

T - Very heavy chocolate flavor on the front, with the oats and coffee settling in gradually. The flavor components seem to balance the best in the aftertaste.

M - Oh so thick, oh so heavy, but not to the point of being syrupy. For me, perfect mouthfeel.

O - Would have loved for the chocolate to be toned down just a tad to let the other great flavors in this guy shine. Other than that, excellent imperial stout and certainly lives up to the hype.
