look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - The beer poured a thick black with mocha bubbles crowning the glass.

Smell - The nose resembles rich chocolate. This is chocolate cake quality.

Taste - On the initial, I get sweet chocolate, expresso, burnt sugar, dark fruits , and perhaps dome black licorice. The bitterness of the coffee lingers on the aftertaste. It is tart on the tongue and roof of the mouth.

Mouthfeel - There is more carbonation than I would have expect. Thick and quite smooth as a whole.

Overall - A great stout that I would drink again.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: It has a nice jet black colour to it. It has a nice creamy beige head that dies down moderately slow and leaves some nice lacing

Smell: The aromas definitly give out hints of loads of chocolate, roasted malts, faint coffee, some vanilla and sweet dark fruit.

Taste: Like the aromas, it has sweet chocolate, roasted malts, some bitter coffee undertones, light vanilla and dark fruit in the back (mostly raisins).

Mouthfeel: It has a low-med carbonation with a nice overall balance and feel.

Drinkability: It's a very smooth drinkable beer accompanied with good flavors and aromas.

Serving type: Bottle

Poured from a 22oz bottle into pint glass in November 2015. Did not see a drink by date on the bottle, but drank it shortly after purchasing it.

Appearance: Deep black with dark tan head. Beer is clear and not cloudy. Head is thick, and leaves a nice film on the glass.

Smell: Aroma filled with roasted malt, chocolate, and some hops. Nice variety and balance

Taste: There is a great roasted coffee flavor. I also get nice chocolate flavors, balanced with a bit of hops. There is more hops than in other Imperial Stouts, and done in a nice combination with the other flavors. There is a nice variety of flavors in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Full-bodied. Strong alcohol, which confirms the 12% on the bottle.

This is a smooth full-bodied Imperial Stout. It is an interesting combination of flavors, and I want to drink this again.
