Had this on 2012-01-26 in Danville, KY.

A - Midnight black with a 2- finger light brown head that drops to a skim coating with some ringed lacing.

S - Dark roasted grain, dark chocolate, some coffee, some ripe cherry.

T - Chocolate milkshake with a couple shots of expresso. Acrid bitterness from the dark roasted grain swells into the aftertaste with a nice amount of balancing chocolate sweetness. Alcohol is subdued.

M - Thick body and light carbonation. As creamy and substantial as I had hoped for.

O - Well-balanced and easy to drink. Reminds me of a Terrapin Wake N Bake with less coffee. Also reminds me of a Founders Imperial Stout although not as charred. Not as commanding a Russian Imperial Stout in terms of boldness of flavors as something like Firestone Walker's Parabola. Guess this is pretty good stuff though based on the beers I am comparing it to!
