Pours a very dark brown with a half inch, well retained dark tan head that left very nice lacing. Smells of coffee, malt, chocolate and just a hint of oak. Tastes of mildly bitter espresso, dark chocolate, roasted malts, a touch of oak and some sweet caramel notes. Full bodied, lightly carbonated with a smooth mouthfeel. Very good Imperial Stout.

dark brown with a caramel brown head. good retention and beautiful lace.

roasted malt and espresso notes are prominent, well complimented by oak, leather, dark chocolate, light booze, earthy hops providing some bitterness. mouthfeel is decent.

Poured a solid black body with what could possibly be the darkest mocha colored head I've seen. The aroma was dominated with dark espresso notes, followed by dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, and a hint of oak. Taste was almost identical to the smell. Initial coffee flavor, not overly bitter but not overly sweet. The coffee is quickly followed by the slightly sweeter chocolate and roasted malts. The oak wasn't nearly as present in the taste as the aroma. This was an extremely creamy and thick brew. The mouth feel was nearly perfect. I'll definitely be drinking more in the future.

Gorgeous beer. Motor oil black pour with ample viscous, sticky brown foam. Retention and lacing are superb. The aroma is chocolate, roast, oak. There is some dark, bitter espresso aroma, but it is not as strong as I expected. On taste, the chocolate, oak, and bitter coffee dominate the palate. The beer is full bodied with low-moderate carbonation. Slightly sweet, bitter finish. Overall, a very nice beer.
