Open bottle 2/28/15. Really came together over the last year. Wish I had more.

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.

So...nobody is going to write a real review of this, and the name format is wrong. To things that annoy me. Only slightly kidding :) Anyway, a growler from Premium Draught in Houston.

A: Pours a completely opaque black color. A two finger rocky tan head forms with excellent retention. Rings of lace are left behind.
S: Big roasted malt, cream and coffee, bakers chocolate. Toasted malts and baked bread. Some liquorish. Some leafy hops in the finish.
T: A big roasted malty flavor. Cream and coffee. Deep, dark, bakers chocolate flavors. Even some toffee and liquorish. A lingering, light bitterness. Partly from late finishing hops, and partly from the chocolate flavors.
M/D: This has a big full body. Viscous, but not overly inky and oily. Moderate carbonation. Smooth at the same time. A bit of warming heat. This is a big beer. Though a very nice sipper.

This is a great Imperial Stout. Very enjoyable and highly recommened if you are looking for a big stout.
