Bottle bought at the tasting room in San Diego. Black in the glass, beige creamy head. Very roasty at the nose, more coffee than malt. Little bit fruity background. Taste starts with a lot of coffee. Fruity background. Later getting little bit alcoholic. But also smooth. Sweetness in the second row, little bit sticky. Enjoyable stuff.

Pitch black and oily with a very nice dense brown head that lace the glass. Looks like a dessert.
Lots of dark chocolate withsome liqeur and vanilla like sweet touch too it. Like a chocolate praline. Simple but luxurious.
Taste is also pretty straightforward with lots of cacao, sweet dark chocolate, liqueur praline and fruity notes of cherry and grapefruit. Some alcoholwarmth in the finish.
Big round oily body with soft carbonation.
Very good stout.

4.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Beautiful. Completely black and oily, with a tiny layer of mocha coloured foam. Retains its appearance.
Aroma: quite mild; but the aroma that there is, is intense. Loads of coffee, complex and dark malts. Some hoppy aromas, herbal tones.
Flavour: perfect imperial stout. Thick and oily mouthfeel, bitter but not too much, beautiful roast character. Loads of coffee (espresso) and some hints of chocolate. Some caramel. Dry finish, a little warming but very balanced and mild for 12% abv.
Awesome imperial stout, definitely one of the best if not the best I have had.
