Pours nearly jet black except for some ruddy brown when held to the light,a thinner deep beige head atop.Mocha and caramel aromas with a bit of char,maybe a hint of licorice,no oak to be found though.Slightly thin but not something that would be a problem for most.Mocha coffee and roast flavors up front with some caramel in the back end to go along with a tinge of alcohol sweetness.It's oak aged wich I don't really pick up but it's a solid impy stout on it's own.

Had one for the first time in 6 months, 2015 release. Not as well impressed with the oak aging as before. Dont know how many times a year they release it? Quite nice overall. One of the best labels of the year for certain.
