Look - Poured into a snifter. Pours black with a slight brown head.
Smell - Great smell of chocolate and peppers.
Taste - Chocolate, roasted malt, mild cinnamon, and peppers up front with an amazing spicy aftertaste and slight burn down the throat. It only gets better as it warms.
Feel - Smooth up front, full body, low carbonation, and great afterburn!
Overall - I love this beer. It's probably my favorite imperial stout. The complex flavors only get better as it warms. No boozy flavor at all.
