Phenomenal beer. Pours jet black with a big creamy tan head that laces super slow throughout the enjoy drink. By far one of the creamiest beers I have ever had.

Served On-Tap

A — Pours a pitch black hue into the small glass, no real head formation or lacing left behind. Just a thick black liquid in there.

S — Smell is strong, roasted, bitter, and lightly sweet with notes of cherries and vanilla, mostly dark roasted and semi-charred malts, chocolate, little bit of coffee.

T — Much like the nose, incredibly smooth notes of dark roasted malts, chocolate, leather, vanilla, dark cherry, raisin, cocoa powder.

M — Medium-Full bodied, low carbonation, incredibly smooth, no noticeable alcohol heat or warmth, insanely drinkable.

O — Great overall, hard to believe its as strong as advertised, so smooth and luscious.

1/2 pint at Chuck's. Pours a deep rich brown with a minimal head.

Aroma is mostly coffee and chocolate, bitter roasted malt.

Taste is coffee, chocolate, bitter roasted malt, dark fruit, licorice, molasses, toasted marshmallow.

Mouthfeel is full bodied with a dry finish.

Overall a nice complex imperial stout but maybe a little too sweet for my palate.

This is a big, boozy imperial stout that pours as thick and viscous as liquid chocolate. The mocha/chocolate notes dominate on the nose and tastebuds also. Sweet and roasty with a touch of black licorice in there. Not for the faint of heart - this is a beer that will knock you for six. Very enjoyable, maybe one to keep in hand for a nightcap rather than ahead of a long day.

On tap at Hunahpu Day. Served in a wine glass.

Appearance - Black with a mocha head.

Smell - Vanilla and sweet chocolate. Boozy.

Taste - Very sweet. Chocolate and caramel. Some roasted malts comes through in the back end, but the booze kicks in, too.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and boozy.

Overall - I got a large pour of this. I really didn't want to overdo it on imperial stouts, but this was tasty and drank pretty easily for its size.
