Appearance is a thick dark black with a one finger light brown hard.
Aroma is milk chocolate, milky and sweet with hints of coffee.
Flavor is coffee and chocolate, milk and dark chocolate.
Some bittersweet flavors and a little dark fruit.
Mouthfeel is a tad creamy and smooth. Little bitter flavor on the finish.
Good quality dessert beer.

750 ml bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, vanilla, fudge, oats, light roast, chocolate syrup, floral, and roasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt and chocolate notes; with good strength. Taste of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, vanilla, fudge, light roast, oats, chocolate syrup, floral, and roasted earthiness. Light amount of earthy hop bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, cocoa, caramel, toast, vanilla, fudge, light roast, oats, chocolate syrup, floral, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and chocolate syrup flavors; with a fair amount of hop bitterness balance and zero cloying sweetness after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice imperial chocolate stout. All around good balance, robustness, and complexity of dark/roasted malt and chocolate flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
