One of my favorites. Easy to get for me. There is nothing bad about this beer if you are a fan of Imperial Stouts. I love that this is available year round.

12oz canned 5/10/17 poured into a snifter at fridge temp 9.5% ABV. The beer pours dense black with thick & abundant chocolate brown head. The head recedes to an island and leaves behind lacing the length of the glass. The aroma is roasty cocoa and coffee. The taste is bittersweet chocolate that ends in roasty bitterness. Mouthfeel is full bodied, adequately carbonated and mostly dry in the finish. There is no hint of alcohol in the aroma or taste. Overall, excellent. World class straight up RIS.

Really enjoyed this beer. It’s a very well crafted Stout. Creamy, thick mouthfeel. Great coffee, caramel dark notes. Medium head with an excellent drinkablity throughout.

Pours a dark black with a beautiful mocha head thats expands powerfully. Very inviting to the eyes.

Smells of coffee and chocolate. Warming and gentle.

Very thick and enjoyable mouthfeel.

The taste is a little unbalanced, being a lot of bitterness lasting throughout and into the aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden though. Definitely a sipper.

Pours black. Short, foamy, brown head that Fades fast with a lasting ring.

Smells roast malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit hints and light earthiness.

Taste roast malt, dark fruit, espresso, light coffee and light Char. Followed by a strong earthy bitterness. Finishes dry with a roast and pine linger. Full body and creamy medium carbonation.

Pours jet black with a massive tan head and glue like lacing. This is a pretty looking beer. Nose is molasses, coffee, burnt sugar, malt, and smoke. The taste follows the nose, very rich flavors with a mild alcohol bite but a very complex and enjoyable beer.

Beer pours a black color with a dark tan head. The smell is chocolate, coffee and alcohol. The flavor is a deep burnt malt that's bitter on the pallet and has a strong aftertaste. It's not overly carbonated so that good. Overall there are a lot better imperial stouts out there for the price.
