DRAFT:
A - Extremely dark in color and retained a light brown head throughout

S - Difficult to identify absent a light alcoholic smell

T - Hints of molasses

F - This beer left a dry-like taste on the tongue are reminded me of drinking a dry wine

O - I'm not racing out to get more or telling all my friends about it, but would certainly never turn this beer away. A decent imperial stout.

Wow, what a beer. Pours like motor oil(good luck trying to see anything through it. Head is light coffee colored with tons of agitated bubbles and tremendous lacing. Aroma is rather light with malt tones, roast coffee and chocolate cake. Taste is very creamy with some sweetness, roasted coffee(espresso) and some toasted chocolate(just to the edge of burnt, but not). Overall, this beer is a mouthful and brings out lots of coffee, chocolate and a touch(ever so small ) amount of hop bitterness. This beer lingers on the palate, and U know what????. That's ok. Full bodied and the epitomy of an amazing imperial stout !!!!!!!!!!!
