This was poured into a nonic pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking black color with a creamy tan finger's worth of head. Lingering lacing sticks and then slides into the beer.
The smell starts off with thick luscious milk chocolate, dark fruits, light vanilla and as it warms a light cake - like breadiness.
The taste was sweet and thick through previously mentioned flavors. Subtle roastiness comes out in the taste. There's a slick sweet malty aftertaste leading into the finish.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fairly decent sipping to sessionable quality about it. Carbonation feels good.
Overall, good RIS, willing to have again but maybe not necessarily one to really seek out.

This was good, but less intense than most imperial stouts.

Despite the mixed reviews on this beer I had no issue with it..motor oil black with nice espresso and chocolate on the nose..taste was similar to smell with a medium body..the wife and I enjoyed it..

Awesome stout. Light fruity flavor. Light texture. As far as looks it looks like a nice thick stout. Different stout for me but I love it!

I really enjoyed this beer and the fact it was 5.99 made it even better. I'm buying more of it now.
