Poured near black into a stout glass. A couple inches of foamy tan head forms but does recede to a thin cap relatively quickly. Decent lacing at first but it dissipates as well.

Nose is traditional Imperial Stout - big roast malt bill with coffee and chocolate notes. Bit of tobacco but not much more depth. Standard, but good.

Flavor follows but is really nice. Malt character is big on the roast aspect. The chocolate/coffee notes are more subtle and it's more nuanced than expected. Touch of ripe dry fruit here, maybe prune, but not much and really just a really solid big Imperial Stout.

Feel is great - carb level is about perfect. Tight, a touch thin but high enough to add a nice lightly bitter note to make sure this doesn't come across too sweet. Definitely not on the thin side but not overly viscous - it's right where I'd want it and expect it for such a high ABV but without any barrel aging here.
