12 oz on draft at FM Smoke House in Irving

Poured with a good, thick tan to brown head over an opaque black body. Good lacing.

Not sure if it's just the temp being too cold, but very light on the nose. Some bitter bark, bakers chocolate, and fresh NW hops. A real smokiness comes thru as it warms.

Flavors come thru with burnt malt that just sticks on the palate throughout the swallow and finish (yes, I said swallow and finish in the same sentence). Leafy bitterness. Smokey malt. Tangy finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light for a 10%er, but good, IMO. Not too thick.

Interesting beer, and has plenty of flavor going on. Just not sure I'd seek it out again.

Pours out dark black and I cannot find any amber or brown hues anywhere along its edges. The head is thick foamy and dark tan color. It’s very inviting and almost makes me want to make a pillow out of the head.
Strong roasted malts, coffee, liquorish, vanilla, figs and cream are all mixed in its aroma.
The roasted malts are the first to hit your tongue, the bitterness follows, then the rest of the flavors come through. The mild bitter chocolates sweep through the side of your mouth, very mild coffee in its aftertaste but not much else- it could just be me.
It is a bit light on the mouth feel but falls in the medium mouthfeel category.
Overall, this is a great beer to have and its been fun sitting down in the cold just to be warmed up by the imperial stout.

Rich black pour with a two finger brown head. Nice rich coffee flavor that is slightly more sweet than bitter. Also can taste a slight bit of booze. Roasted finish.
