Notes / Commercial Description:
This titanic, immensely viscous stout is loaded with inimitable flavors of chocolate-covered caramel and coffee and hide a hefty 98 IBUs underneath the smooth blanket of malt. It is made with enormous amounts of two-row malt, chocolate malt, roasted barley, flaked oats and hops.

Poured from 12 oz can into Stone Brewing pint glass.

A: Pitch black with brown creamy three finger head that seemed to last forever. Nice lacing.

S: Amazing. Dark chocolates, Expresso, maybe some dark fruits, roasted malts.

T: Creamy, following nose with chocolates and coffe notes. Big flavors that I enjoy with an imperial stout.

M: Full bodied. Thick but not overly so. Creamy and coats the palette nicely.

O: Easily one of the best stouts. One of my goto choices.

A: Motor oil black with a light brown, almost maroonish creamy head leaving pretty nice lacing. Looks very rich and inviting.

S: Roasted malts, espresso, baker's chocolate, just a hint of vanilla, and some dark fruits in the background. The smell is incredible.

T: Mirrors the nose in many ways which is a very good thing. Lots of dark chocolate, plums, strong espresso, and roastiness. Wow.

M: Thick, creamy, smooth. What I imagine most stouts to be, only this time I'm not disappointed.

O: One of the few beers I've had where I find no flaws.
