A: Pours a pitch black color with a fingers worth of head that fades down to a a thin ring of lace around the glass

S: Lots of roast and coffee up front, along with some dark chocolate and vanilla. Dark fruits are lightly present as well

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with a load of roasted malt and coffee, followed by a bittersweet dark chocolate, dark fruit, and some vanilla notes. Earthy notes from the hops provide some balance before finishing with more coffee and a light sweetness

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Could actually use a little less carbonation to give it an even fuller feel

O: A very solid imperial coffee stout with a big emphasis on the coffee and roast. Nicely sippable at a tick under 9%, while providing lots of warmth on a cold day. Definitely worth checking out if you're into coffee stouts

Poured into a 12 oz tulip glass, having trouble figuring out the bottling date. Pours a very dark brown with a 2 inch brown head that leaves behind some solid lace.

Smell is expresso, vanilla, anise, leather, chocolate, and hints of booze.

Taste follows expresso, chocolate, and vanilla upfront with booze, leather, and anise in the background.

Mouthfeel is medium, light carbonation, a little dry, and excellent drinkability.

Overall this is a very solid brew, wish it had a little more body and life, but very good.
