Poured a deep dark chocolate color with a 1F head into snifter.

A strong chocolate-coffee aroma from the head. This weakens within a few minutes,
but the aroma continues during the tasting.

Mouth feel- moderately carbonated.

The taste is dark chocolate, coffee, and light vanilla finished with a hoppy light bitterness.

Overall- an excellent imperial stout. However, I would have preferred the aroma to continue, and the pronounced chocolate-coffee taste to linger.

A-Pours pitch black with a moderate head that fades rather quickly. I didn't notice the lacing others spoke of, maybe something to do with the glass.

S-The smell is fantastic. Chocolate overwelms, while oatmeal and rich malts sit in the background. This definitely is close to the top of my chocolate stout list.

T- Like the smell, the chocolate stands out front...as it should. Very little flavor from the hops, also some subtle oatmeal sweetness Mmmmhm.

M- The texture and mouthfeel are not quite as full as they could be. It feels rather light compared to look smell and taste.

O- I will have this again. So, it is good. It has a much heavier chocolate flavor than their regular chocolate stout. It reminds me of the Rouge Voodoo Donut Chocolate Peanut Butter, Banana...minus all the extras. Good job Rouge.
