A nice imperial stout. Pours out to a dark black color with a small tan foam head. Medium low levels of carbonation. Aromas are very roasty and hearty; roasted malts, grain, some sweetness. Taste was good; lots of malt with a toasted character, some unsweetened dark chocolate and a touch of molasses. Mouthfeel was a bit too light and easy for my taste, but not overly water to the point that it was poorly made. Drinkability is pretty good. I'd go for another.

Black as night with a small brown head. This beer has legs!

The smell was subdued, due to the 35 F serving temp, but as it warmed a bit, there were nice roast notes and a subtle sweetness.

Fantastic tasting! I know "clean" isn't always necessarily used for high gravity beers, but this was definitely clean. Slightly sweet and with an intense roast, One of the nicest tasting Imperial Stouts I've come across.

Huge, full bodied richness. Very delicious, not something that you'd session, but the one you have is very nice,
