Nice Imperial stout from Lagunitas. Pours pitch black with light tan head that dies down to lightly clinging lacing. Nose of fudge, coffee, and deeply roasted grains. Taste is excellent. Smooth chocolate fudge like flavor without being overly sweet, coffee and dark chocolate on the aftertaste with a light hop background. Alcohol warmth on the aftertaste gives this one a big boost without overtaking the other parts of the beer. VERY nice. Cheers.

Black as night, with a surprisingly light beige head that lingers. Aroma is roasty, with tar and dark cocoa chiming in. Flavor reveals a roast malt base, with hints of chocolate and a slightly metallic finish. It's a little light in malt complexity for an imperial stout.
