A: Much like Naughty Sauce and Master of Disguise, this beer is deceptive in appearance with its golden color. This is served on nitro exclusively, which is clear by is fluffy white head.

S: This smells like sweet coffee and chocolate. Definitely appealing, but I can see how this would deter people who like more bitter or bourbony stouts.

T: Wow!!! This is absolutely fantastic. Lots of sweet, decadent chocolate flavors. This is incredibly smooth--you wouldn't even know there's alcohol in here. I could drink this all day. Couldn't imagine this served any other way than on nitro.

M: Thick and creamy. This is perfect for this beer.

O: This is easily one of my all time favorites. If you can find this beer, drink it... you won't regret it.

WOW, I thought that Naughty Sauce was amazing. I can't comprehend how great and smooth this imperiale was. So easy to drink with a high ABV it's almost dangerous.
