Minimal head and lace, nose is sweet chocolate and coffee, taste is more of the same, mouthfeel is a tad on the watery side, considering its touting itself as an imperial stout I'm not overly impressed, but its a new brewery some growing is to be expected.

First had poured from 12-oz. can, stamped on bottom “IT’S SLIPPER TIME 24580 60.5,” gift from friend, into faceted mug, Sweet then roasty, solid but big stock stout.

Poured into a glass from a 12oz can.

L - Pours a deep brown, appearing jet black in the glass. Thin mocha head with light lace.

S - Chocolate malt sweetness dominates the nose.

T - Roasted malts, dark chocolate, a hint of coffee, and a slight hop bitterness in the finish.

F - Very thin bodied and not at all like an Imperial (or any kind of) stout. Very low carbonation.

O - Not bad flavor wise, but the lack of mouthfeel and one dimensional aroma just kills this one for me.

Very similar to Southern Star's Buried Hatchet Stout, but sweeter. Very good!

Pretty unremarkable stout. Really sweet and over done on chocolate. Almost no head or lacing on pour.
