Pours a thin tan finger of head on a black body.
The aroma is chocolate and vanilla.
The taste is sweet overall, vanilla and roasted malt.
The texture is soft and creamy.
Quite enjoyable.

Picked this up for $3.69. Poured into a goblet.

A - Off to a great start such a viscous blackness with an even darker colored head. This head is thick and full two inch plus that takes forever to dissipate.
S - Soft notes of tobacco, roast and bakers chocolate fill the nose. Notable hop presence and very little sweetness means a very traditional stout.
T - Very viscous and sweeter than I expected with some bakers chocolate a bit coffee forward and a slight herbal finish with a twang of tobacco leaves.
M - Very full yet creamy medium to heavy in body.

Overall a very hearty stout with a decent price. It rivals most stouts around here. Recommended!

Appearance - Not really much to look at with this beer - the body is essentially pitch black. The head is small but is tinted a mahogany brown. Doesn't last too long but leaves a decent lacing.

Aroma - The nose is smoky and slightly woody. Coffee, bitter chocolate, vanilla, and licorice fill the aroma.

Taste - The flavor focuses more narrowly on the coffee and roasted malt character and even picks up some hints of nuttiness as well. The vanilla is still here, but the chocolate seems to fade away a bit. The finish has a slightly ashy, smoke quality that gives it an acrid aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Mouthfeel is thick, robust, and nicely carbonated. This definitely weighs on the palate, but the carbonation helps it from being too sticky.

Closing Arguments - Overall this is a decent imperial stout. I can't say there's really anything distinguishing about it that pulls it away from competition, but $3.30 for a > 10%+ beer is a solid bargain at least.

Soft Dookie? More like soft d#$/. This is a deep, chewy, roasty brew. Notes of dark chocolate, tobacco, coffee... nice distinct bitterness for balance. Delicious. Seek out for a nice nightcap.

330ml bottle. Freshness date unclear.

A: Opaque black. The head is thin but well retained.
S: Somewhat nutty. A little vanilla.
T: Coffee. Low in roasted characters. Medium- bitterness. Semi-sweet. A little bit nutty (of hazelnut). A touch of spicy (of pepper). Alcohol hiding has been done quite well even if the flavors are weaker than many imperial stouts.
M: Full bodied. Not way too thick.
O: Unfortunately I think it's a bit weak in both smells and tastes.
