2/17/16 bottle date

when I heard this was coming to town, how could I not snag one? enjoyed from an evil twin wine glass. super tasty toasty stout without being over roasted. the chocolate balances out the roastiness. well worth the pickup and hunt.

look: Dark brown, nearly opaque. Full mocha head. Looks like an imp stout should.
smell: Roasty vanilla smoke. Very nice smoke on top of a creamy Imp stout nose.
taste: Even better than the nose. Semi-sweet vanilla. cocoa milkshake with roasty, smoky notes.

22 ounce bottle, "date filled" on label is 2/17/16. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that stayed around for a really long time. There's a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like burnt/charred malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some licorice and earthiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think it's a good imperial stout, I liked it. However it's pricey at $15.99 a bomber.
