Absolutely gorgeous stout: dark and inky, topped with a very firm mocha head, with excellent retention and great lacing.

Fairly subdued and traditional imperial stout aroma: roast coffee, a touch of chocolate, some dark fruit, and a hint of yeast esters. Toffee and marshmallow underneath the powerful roast.

Flavor closely follows the nose: a bit of dark fruit (not at all tart, though); tons of roasted barley and coffee flavor; exceptionally bitter dark chocolate flavor; grassy, vegetal hops tinged with more citrus than I would have expected. Citrus peel aftertaste.

Very drinkable and big; pretty thick stout. Long, lingering finish, coating the mouth with bitter hop oils.

This is a very good, very drinkable stout. It's not breaking any new ground, but it does everything very well.

This is a solid stout. The beer pours an opaque black with thick rich tan head that is leaving a lace. The scent is earth and peat with hints of espresso. The taste follows the scent quite nicely.....with an addition of anise. The mouthfeel is fuller in body with smooth carbonation. Overall.....oh yeah....daddy likie!
