Appearance: This beer pours a dark black color and is topped with ½” of brown colored head.
Smell: The aroma of this beer is all roasted malts and coffee tasty smelling beer.
Taste: Roasted malts and coffee flavors is all that I can taste which isn’t bad but just wish it would be a little more complex to be a great stout.
Mouthfeel: Thick and oily just like a stout should be a good sipper for a chilly night.

I was not impressed with this beer. It smells better than it tastes. There was a strong aftertaste that lingered long after each swallow. A bitter off-taste that is outside my list of taste adjectives. The beer had good promise when drinking until that aftertaste hit me. I drank from a bottle, like I always do, so I don;t even know or care what color it was or how much head it had. Overall, I liked this beer, but I was disappointed by the strange aftertaste. I could really feel the slightly stronger alcohol content.

A: The beer is essentially jet black in color—traces of dark brown are visible near the edges of the glass when it is held up to a bright light—and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin and dense tan head that quickly died down, leaving some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of licorice, semisweet chocolate and dark fruits in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and does not have any bitterness or flavors of roasted malts.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. No dryness is perceptible.
O: This beer is somewhat unusual compared to other beers in the style because it lacks dryness and flavors of roasted malts and seems to be somewhat of a hybrid between a Belgian Strong Dark Ale and a Russian Imperial Stout. Nonetheless, it is relatively easy to drink and hides its alcohol very well.

Poured from bottle into pint glass. Pours a deep brown with amber hue and slight tan head. Smells of sweet chocolate roasted malt. Nice bitter aroma as well. Taste is a bit woody earthy boozey. Its slightly bitter but sweet. It has a nice smooth aged feel. Nice imperial stout especially for a year round and cheap 6er.
