Look- A deep black that I cannot see through. The head was there for just a second before it dissipated.
Smell- Mix of coffee and milk chocolate.
Taste- Dark chocolate with some blend of coffee. Since I am not a huge coffee fanatic and I don't really enjoy dark chocolate in general this wasn't amazing in my books.
Feeling- A decent amount of carbonation that really doesn't have much of a bite to it from the alcohol.
Overall- This was an alright experience that I thought relied too much on coffee to lead this drink to victory.

Look: Black with no light shining through. A finger of creamy, tan head.

Smell: Roasted malts, sweet chocolate, coffee, and little vanilla. Very nice combination of aromas.

Taste: Tastes just like it smells with the addition of strong caramel flavors. Quite a delicious stout.

Feel: Creamy, a little coating in the mouth, light carbonation. Surprisingly drinkable for an imperial.

Overall: I would never guess this is an imperial, because of it's drinkibility. However, it tastes great, so I'm sure stout/porter lovers are going to enjoy this brew.

Color is dark brown that looks thinner exposed to light. Tan head that faded quick. Smells of licorice. Taste is a little bitter without much body--bitter notes of the licorice and roasted coffee. All and all it tasted okay, but I want something more here than a bitter flavor, dark color, and a light feel.

Had two bottles with the old man on Christmas and i was pleasantly surprised. Had a very good chocolatey type stout flavor without being overly boozy or having too much of that roasty burnt flavor some craft stouts have. Was a good beer to sip on but went down easy enough that you coukd drink it quick if you wanted to. Big fan of the brewery and this beer; had it during xmas brunch and went well with the food.

This beer pours clear, reddish black with an average head. the aroma offers lots of chocolate, as well as prune, fruity coffee - overall the aroma is very fruity and soft. The flavor is oozing with semi-sweet chocolate, fig, prune, walnut, and some vague roastiness and the end. There are also floral notes at the finish. The mouthfeel is fairly full bodied, and creamy, with semi sharp carbonation. Overall this is a fantastic stout - complex and never harsh, and at an unbeatable price. This is a classic.

This beer poured into a snifter is a really dark almost black color, there was no head to speak of. This is a very rich sipping beer, there a coffee and chocolate notes, malty with very little hop presence. The lacing was very minimal. Overall a very well rounded beer.
