Pours a pitch black thick heavy beer with no light getting through, dark chocolate colored frothy thick almost 1 finger head that fades at a med pace, nice lacing, nice legs too.

Nose brings lots of dark malts, but fluffy, some fluffy nougat, a little roast acrid like note, a very dry roasty charred malts with roasted cereal, like a chocolate cereal cocoa crispies roasted, some wafer cookie biscuit with dry cocoa, touch of booze, a little creamy vanilla chocolate ice cream blend.

Taste brings a smoked malt flavor out front, roasty malts as well, little campfile smoke with some roasty charred malts, again that burnt cereal grains, etc. A little chocolate, more like dry cocoa powder, with some creamy chocolate as well, chewy fluffy nougat, some acrid roast in the background, with super dark malts and a little bitter roast. Bitterness comes in quite a bit also from some chewy slight spicy earthy hops. Finish is sticky sweet, very sticky, little booze warmth, lingering dark roasty char and dry cocoa that somehow sticks everywhere, lingering bitterness and roast.

Mouth is fuller bod, thick, little creamy, touch of booze warmth, decent fluffy carb.

Overall decent, nice malts, fluffy creamy feel, decent roast and dark malts without being too acrid, nice dry cocoa and bitter hops, but the overall feel is lacking some extra oompf, and the sticky feel is a bit much as well. Still a decent enjoyable imperial stout.

A: This poured an opaque black with thick tan head.
S: It smelled like cocoa powder and roasted coffee, with some cream and a bit of licorice.
T: It tasted like bitter coffee and licorice, with some sweet and dry cocoa powder. It had a clean bitter aftertaste.
M: It was thick with moderate carbonation. Nice big body.
D: This was a nice imperial stout, with basic but good scent and taste. The body was fitting, and the finish was fairly smooth, so it was pretty easy to drink. Would probably age well. Fresh is enjoyable but forgettable.

This is difficult - if I wasn't at EBF is probably give this a 5, but it falls a bit short of other big stouts.

Brief write-up. A standard issue imperial stout, it makes up for that by showing off the notes I like (roast, chocolate, coffee) in a controlled fashion. I enjoy the gently hoppy finish as well. A complaint: it's too thin. The slender body clashes with the slickness left on the palate, but it remains pretty drinkable. Just a nice under-the-radar imperial stout, plain and simple.

3.7/5: It certainly isn't stupid!
