Interesting appearance, dark brown, dark red colors to the edge. Not a lot of carbonation to form a head with, whispy and thin tan colored. Has a nutty and chocolate malt aroma.

Taste goes equal parts roasted black malts, but also brown malt and a nuttiness you see from other styles than an imperial stout. It is very smooth, not aggressively hopped kind of stout.

Its not a bad beer, those who want more ooomph in their Guinness kind of stouts might be into this.

Great flavor and nicely balanced for a less boozy 8% Imperial Stout.
