On draft. Good beer but not great. Looks great. Black w tan head. Good retention and lacing. Nose is slight coffee and burnt malts. Tastes bitter initially, chocolate, coffee and roast. Dry finish. A bit thin for an imperial stout IMO.

Mostly chocolate on the aroma. Smooth chocolate on the mouth with a long lasting bitter dark chocolate after taste.

Bottle. Pours almost black with dark brown frothy head. Nose of candy, hope and alcohol. Well balance flavour of coffee and chocolate. Not nearly as bitter as the name would suggest. Very tasty.
