Poured from a 12oz bottle into a snifter.

Pours a big black body, slightly translucent on the pour but once it's in the glass it's dark inky and opaque.

Aromas are heavy milk chocolate, hazelnut, vanilla, butterscotch. The tongue matches the nose with lots of chocolate, tootsie rolls, heavy hazelnut, some soy, finishes with dark chocolate. I have to say the aroma and taste are slightly artificial. For 9.4% the alcohol is hidden but the body is a little watery with low carbonation.

Pretty good, natural flavors are a little forced and artificial though, and that's not something I'm a big fan of.

A little on the sweet side.
All flavors named are accounted for.
Doesn't drink too heavy.

Wonderful chocolate and hazelnut flavors with just enough bitterness to balance, smooth creamy mouthfeel, and zero alcohol noticeable. Just a terrific all around beer.

A decent stout but lacks a little substance for an imperial stout. I had this at a tasting and it seemed to need a little more time to meld the flavors. A bit green for a stout. This could have been a pretty good stout in a month or so.
