Marsh mellow on the nose.

Smoke on the flavor.

If this brew had any type of mouth feel to it other than thin it would be great! I'd say that it is worth trying but nothing to write home to ma' about.

Pours a dark, dark, brown. Smell is chocolate and vanilla. I taste mostly dark chocolate, vanilla, macadamia nuts. I don't get a lot of expresso. Alcohol seeks up from behind. Bitterness is well hidden.

Pitch black, small head

This imperial stout is really old school and very different from what you got right now.

Roasty and quite bitter (chicory bitterness), it shows a bit of acidity.

Not that thick mouthfeel

Straightforward, traditional style stout - lots of roasted malt, a little coffee and chocolate, maybe just a little too much hop bitterness on the back end

looked like most imperial stout, very dark with just a hint of light coming through the edges of the glass. smells of roasted (almost burnt coffee) but what surprised me was the hoppiness coming through that also made it into the taste. mouthfeel was fairly thick. a very drinkable imperial stout that when fresh is almost like a black ipa.

This sort of tasted more like an IPA than a stout...
