A - Nothing extraordinary. Deep brown color, light latte-colored head which fades fairly quickly, leaving some sticky lacing.

S - Awesome. Tons of rich molasses and brown sugar mixed with cold espresso and dark fruits, with a pleasantly boozy undertone.

T - Even more awesome. A complex balance of malty sweetness, hoppy bitterness and sour fruits. The high alcohol is completely hidden by a rich cascade of muscovado sugar, coffee, dark chocolate, pumpernickel bread and dark sour fruits. It combines many of the best characteristics of American and British porters/stouts into one beer.

M - About what you'd expect from an imperial stout. As with everthing else about this beer, the keyword is balance.

D - Extraordinary, especially considering the nearly 10% alcohol content. I've tried few beers that offered so much flavor and complexity while going down so easy.

I haven't been especially impressed by Mohawk's previous offerings, but this one is a masterpiece, and it can only get better with age.

A: Pitch black with some red tones when lit up. Slightly hazy. The foam is thick, dense and light brown. It sinks away rather slowly, leaving rich lacings.

S: Intense, with hints of chocolate and coffee. Lots of molasses, raw sugar and some liquorice. Subtle hints of dark rum and citrus fruits. The smell finishes with hoppy aromas and some red wine.

T: Full-bodied with a fine sweetness. Coffee and cocoa. Some grassy hop aromas. Roasted malt, honey. Molasses, some soy sauce and a small hint of veal stock. Alcohol is present. The aftertaste is long, bitter and filled with luxurious cocoa.

M: Nearly no carbonation. The alcohol is clearly noticable. Nice bitterness.

O: This is a damn good beer. Luckily I've got another 6 bottles saved.
