Dark, nearly black body with a lasting yet somewhat thin head. Plums, figs, and booze comprise the aroma; cocoa and some coffee. Taste closely mirrors the aroma. Body comes across medium-heavy, a little bubbly, somewhat sugary.

Overall, a pretty good imperial stout with most components playing nicely with each other yet with a slightly disjointed feel. Still, the beer is rich and flavorful, keeps the ABV reined in nicely, and generally fits the bill for the style.

A- Pitch black. Poured a nice, creamy 1 finger head. Awesome lacing, trailing, and legs.

S- Dark fruits: plum and dark cherry. Caramel, toffee, coffee, dark chocolate, booze and some smoke. Smell's like there's some oatmeal in there, too. Just a touch of band-aid, but in a good way.

T- Plums, cherry, smoke, and caramel, followed by decadent bittersweet dark chocolate, toffee, and a nice balance of booze. Nice smokey aftertaste.

M- Thickish, creamy, slightly syrupy. Taste melds with the mouthfeel beautifully! Drying and oily. Smokiness lingers a bit.

O- This was an awesome beer! I usually drink half of a bomber before sitting down to review, but this time, I only had about a cup left before it even crossed my mind. I loved how the mouthfeel complimented the flavors. I can't really explain how it did, but they went together wonderfully to me! I would drink this again in a heartbeat!

Appearance - Pours jet black with a tan, finger width head. Good retention leads to a thin, but consistent layer of suds across the surface. Lacing is small, spotty and all over the glass, showing excellent stick.

Smell - Smokey roasted malt is the most pungent quality. Woodiness. Raisin and distant milk chocolate. Light astringency.

Taste - Dark fruits hit first, with prominent of raisin and fig. Touches of char and some mild roast. Chocolate is in there somewhere. Finishes with more sweet dark fruit character and a faint mocha quality.

Mouthfeel - Full bodied with a bit of syrupy feel. Low carbonation, but delivers a light tingle. Goes down fair enough, with a light alcohol bite.

Overall - Nice beer, but for the price I'd sooner grab a 4 pack of Grand Teton Black Cauldron for my smokey impy fix. More roasted depth would've been nice. Likley a one and done for me due to the high price tag.

Poured from a bomber into a wide mouth pint glass. Was a deep black with little transparency around the edges, and very little head. Smelled of chocolate, a hint of coffee and smokey alcohol. Taste was led with a dark chocolate flavor, followed by a mix of smoke and coffee with a tart cherry and cranberry finish. Really liked the complexity of the taste, which really came out as it warmed up. There was a little bit of carbonation in the mouth, but was still substantial. I really enjoyed this beer. It was balanced, yet complex. A very satisfying stout.
