Way better than Igor with less alcohol burn in the finish. I find it a better than Class 5 for my tastes. A 22 oz bottle of this is a nice way to drink my brunch, and it doesn’t give the headache Igor delivers with a vengeance.

22 ounce bottle poured into a snifter

Pours pitch black with no light coming through except a slight tint around the edges, head was full and lightly mocha colored, very little carbonation, slight lacing.
Big char and smoke aromas along with dark chocolate, espresso, and dark berries, no alcohol on the nose, big aromas, smells promising.
Follows the nose with huge flavors of smoke and char, lots of dark chocolate and espresso, touch of sweet dark berries like blackberries and blueberries, touch of alcohol and hops as well, finish is dry with lingering notes of char, smoke, chocolate, and coffee, moderate amount of espresso and dark chocolate like bitterness, very balanced and flavorful.
Full bodied with low carbonation and a dry char and smoke like finish, very little carbonation.

If you like imperial stouts with smoke, char, espresso, dark chocolate, and dark berries, then this imperial stout is for you, has a sweet note that is not often found in imperial stouts, it's balanced, smooth, drinkable, and I'm guessing would probably age well.
