Green wax 650ml hard pour into an American pint glass produces a few inches worth of frothy head that settles down after a few minutes, tan brown head, solid black body with zero flashlight escaping past the edges, light delicate lacing

Aroma has hints of roast chocolate and burnt malts, light espresso in the back, alcohol dominates

Taste is bitter hops at first, but settles into roasted dark chocolate, strong bitter sweet caramel coffee

Mouthfeel is thick and heavy, very subtle carbonation, medium-dry finish

Only picked up to try due to being local, that being said I actually enjoyed this one for the feel but the flavor and aroma lack a bit, it’s still fairly fresh though too so will have to check back in when I try the Red Wax vintage

Chewy and thick. Flavours of Whoppers, chocolate malt, and dark malt sweetness.

On tap. Stellar imperial stout. Looks like a BBA with the thin tan head that hangs around and laces the glass. Smell is a bit of a winelike tang. Taste is all roasty malts and a bit of lacto tang. Feel is solid body, moderate carb. Overall quite good

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a tulip. Split with a couple friends while at the brewery.

Appearance: rich black hue with a layer of creamy tan foam. Beautiful.

Smell: super sweet aroma with elements of malt, smoke and licorice. A nice roasty character rounds out the balance; great.

Taste: roasty, sweet and quite licorice-ey. Rich and delicious.

Mouthfeel: huge body; smooth, creamy and fantastic.

Overall: a wonderful imperial stout. Absolutely worth a try.

Sampled at Boise’s Imperial Stout get together, over 120 bottles to choose from. Going with the flow on this rating. This was one of my contributions to the event.
