This is a solid imperial stout. Coffee and chocolate flavor. Somewhat of a metallic taste, but not enough to ruin anything. The smell is divine. I'm enjoying this on tap, but the price for a 4 pack of 12 oz cans has driven me away. Even though it's enjoyable on tap i won't pay the canned price.

A: solid, midnight black color. No light shining through at all. Real nice dark tan .5 finger head

S: Deep dark chocolate, roast malt, milk chocolate , some soy sauce. There is some lactose sweetness in the aroma as well

T: silky milk chocolate, roasted malts, caramel, toffee, dates, soy sauce, cola, brown sugar. There is a touch of bitterness from the roast malt, which is good because it balances out some of the sweetness. Also, some bitterness from the roast malt. Very luscious taste

M: heavy, super silky mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Definitely a sipper

O: fantastic stout. It’s heavy, rich, and silky smooth. Sip on this and enjoy!

Pours black with a surprisingly large dark tan head that took 5 minutes or so to settle into a splotchy cap.
Smells dark, roasty, getting more dark fruit than coffee and chocolate.
Taste follows, a touch on the bitter side with the dark fruit, burnt malt, some dark coffee notes as well. Pretty dry finish.
Feel is thick, a bit chewy with a good carbonation level.
Overall a very tasty stout, enjoying this one and looking forward to the BA version.

This is one of.if not my favorite Imperial/Russian stouts. Smooth, flavourful, not overpowering in any one way. I only wish I could get my hands on some vintage.or barrel aged version!
