4.68/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured from a 32 oz crowler into a tulip glass.

Pours a near pitch black color with 2 fingers of fluffy caramel head. The lacing is just stupid, nearly coating the entire top of the glass before the head settles into a thick blanket of foam resting gently atop the beer.

The aroma brings notes of dark roasted malts, fresh roasted coffee beans, and dark chocolate. As the beer warms, notes of tar and plums come out of hiding, as well as the faintest idea of bread and caramel.

The taste is exploding with bitter, dark roast coffee, followed by waves of dark chocolate, caramel, tobacco, and dark fruits. Dark everything. Finishes with a nice kiss of hops after the dark malt palate assault.

The feel is medium full-bodied with soft carbonation. Very dry, creamy, and smooth. Alcohol is well hidden.

Overall, this is a fantastic RIS that will absolutely put hair on your chest. Very roasted with strong malt flavors and just enough hops to keep any sweet flavors in check. Definitely worth seeking out.

On tap at Cask and Vine.
In a snifter the beer was black with a small tan head.
Intense coffee aroma, some chocolate.
Intense coffee taste. Imagine your strongest espresso. Chocolate in the background.
This is the RIS for coffee loveers!

On tap at Cask and Vine,
Rich maltiness with lots of caramel and chocolate. Light dried fruits. Restrained hop presence. Very nice imperial stout, liking the brewery a lot!
