look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A- Pours thick and black with a sizeable, frothy head. Head is creamy and tan in color with great retention and lacing. Body of the beer is inky black in color.

S- The smell of this beer starts out dark and malty with a small dose of dark fruits. A small amount of chocolate come through in the scent, but primarily it is dark fruits and a bit of bitter hops on the nose.

T- The taste of this beer pretty much follows the scent. Starts off dark and malty with just a touch of dark fruit flavors, then a slight bit of hops bitterness. Bitterness brings it back together at the end with just a touch of balance to a semi-sweet chocolate flavor.

M- Thick and creamy, but not too thick and creamy as far as an impy stout goes.

Overall, a solid, and very well priced, imperial stout that is very easy to find.
