Poured into a standard pint glass: color is black, solid, dark, head is tan with fine to small bubbles with a head that presents about 3/4 inch thick and then lingers very very well with some lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is moderately strong with notes of roast, espresso, toast, light earthy hops, bitter cocoa.

Taste is where this beer comes to form - its simple, but well constructed and pleasing: nice roast, touch of espresso, bitter chocolate is not overdone, earthy/bitter hops are present but not detracting from the malt. The lactose smooths the flavors out some.

Mouthfeel is smooth, low carbonation, lingering full sweetness but just enough bitterness to counter.

Overall: a great brew, smooth sweetness plays well with the bitter cocoa and roast.

The nose is full of a malted milk chocolate ball, remember Whoppers, with some grain and chocolate malt.

The flavor is a dry chocolate malt, malted milk, roasted grain and barley, nuttiness and a sweet peanut brittle.

This is just sweet enough and just complex enough to be delicious.

This beer is nearly perfect.
I was completely Impressed
First time in a while that I picked up a beer and it actually tastes like what is described.
The only concern I had was a somewhat of a harsh alcohol bite.
Since it is an imperial stout it wouldn't hurt for it to be aged so the bite could
mello out.

Poured a dark brown to black color with over a finger of beige head. The nose had a touch of chocolate and a touch of coffee. The body was fairly hearty and smooth with some roast as well as a hint of maple syrup and the same touch of chocolate found in the nose. The alcohol presence did get a slight bit too much on the finish but overall this was a pleasurable drinking experience.

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Pours dark brown approaching black with 2 fingers of fluffy, light tan head. Excellent retention along with some very subtle light penetration along the edges.

Nose
Semi-sweet chocolate, raisin, licorice, cocoa and molasses.

Taste
Raisin and prune mingled with semi-sweet chocolate and powdered cocoa. Creamy milk along with notes of licorice and molasses. Finishes with a light earthy bitterness that never overrides the sweetness.

Mouthfeel
Full bodied, silky, creamy and smooth.

Overall
Chocolates and dark fruits mixed with a beautifully creamy and milky body. Impeccably smooth and easy drinking for 9.1%.
