On tap at Blackback Pub in Waterbury, VT. A very opaque black (think used motor oil) with a nice light tan head. Initial impression was milk chocolate, vanilla, molasses, Mouthfeel is quite thick; carbonation is quite light. Alcohol is evdent but not obtrusive. Finish is all about the molasses.
So I like molasses a lot. Throw in 10.2% alcohol and that just enhances things. This is tasty but not something I'd drink more than one of.

Pours black with a finger of khaki head. Head retention is fair, with no lacing left behind. Aroma is a light hit of milk chocolate, but quickly followed and swallowed up by toasted, earthy malts. Flavor profile is earthy, biscuity, toasted malts, with a light hit of chocolate, and spices. Flavor profile is medium in thickness, with a smooth feeling. Overall, spices, and chocolate are pleasant, but the earthy malts are a little too grounded, and earthy for my liking.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 22oz bottle.

Poured into a snifter, the appearance was a nice looking black color. It poured like motor oil. A finger’s worth of off-white to almost tan sort of head slowly escaping nicely to form some concave lace sliding on into the beer. The aroma had a superb amount of thick rugged milk chocolate flowing into sweet black strap molasses. Cocoa powder, dark chocolate nibs, and then roasty coffee beans. The flavor blended extremely well between the roast to the sweet melding the molasses to the chocolate, milky with a cherished semi-spiced little bit of a sticky bite rolling on into the aftertaste and leaving a little bit of a sticky sweet sort of finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. Moderate carbonation feels good for the most part. Acceptable stickiness. Overall, a very well done imperial stout by Foley Brothers.

Pours a very dark, almost black color with a tan to chocolate colored head. Head dissipates quickly. Aroma is sweet with some roastiness and subtle chocolate. Not an overpowering aroma. Taste is roasted chocolate with a touch of sweetness. Actually less sweet than I was expecting based on the aroma. Mouthfeel is medium plus to almost full. Overall, a very good beer, but lacking something to push it to the world class category like many of their other beers.
