New seasonal brew from the local brewery, and I think they got lazy on the naming. If anyone can help with the ABV or if they come out with an actual name, please help.

A- Pours black as night with a small brown head. Good lacing, and average head retention.

S- Dark roasts and chocolate mainly. Not really strong, but not faint either.

T- Big on the burnt roasts and chocolate. A touch of coffee throughout, but not much. Has a sort of burnt aftertaste the sits on the palate for awhile, but it's a good flavor and consistent with the rest of the brew.

M- A little light on the palate for a claimed Imperial Stout. A little more than average carbonation for the style. Not too bad. You can feel a little bit of alcohol present, but not much, and as I'm not aware of the ABV, I would guess between 6% and 7%.

Overall, I'm glad there is a very drinkable stout in my hometown now. A recommendation is to get a growler of it, as a fll is $8 versus $4.50 for a pint.
