black. no real head. no lacing. overall, pretty flat looking beer from that little can.

chocolate in the nose, but also something weirdly powdery. taste is the same - some coffee notes and a bit of cocoa, but then like a powder puff.

mouth is thin and weak. dry.

alcohol is well masked. after that, i'm not a fan.

Smells straight up like a chocolate covered cherry....wow. Not a fan of those but thats EXACTLY what it smells like. This is an awesome imp stout. Lots of minerally taste in water used like a U.K. Stout, crazy. Not chocolate or coffee in flavors really just really good roasted malts.

Brewer's Notes:
"Because we have such pride in our BLK WLF stout, we decided to use it as inspiration for an imperial stout. To make this beast, we took every ingredient from the original BLK WLF stout and packed the mash tun to the brim. The result is a beer bursting with dark cocoa, stone fruit, caramel, and roasted coffee.

Released every year on our anniversary in November.
Bourbon barrel aged also available in taproom.

Poured from 8 fluid ounce can into glass. No stamped canning date found (but recent release, based on can size).
Body is very dark, black, slight mahogany when presented to light. No real head, but has picturesque scattered cap with bubbly ring. Any lacing slides back into glass.
Smells like a dark chocolate brownie. Quite aromatic for a stout.
Taste combination of dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, caramel, dark fruit, and slightly bitter coffee.
Medium mouth feel. Moderately dry.
A real positive surprise, not expected. Very tasty and balanced. Watch for the higher ABV. No real alcohol burn.
