UPDATED: JUN 8, 2014 A big beer that follows up on its promise. Full complex body gets better as it warms up and in the end it totally covers the alcohol content.

Black pour, small brown head.
Roasty chocolate aroma, flavor is toasty with a bit of a bite. A lot of chocolate up front bit more bitter that I typically like my imperial stouts. Quite chewy.

Pours black with a brown head and sweet aroma of chocolate and roasted malt. Taste is sweet, nice chocolatly notes throughout with roasted malt and bitter coffee notes leading to a burnt, roasty finish. Delicious stout

Good and malty. Aroma of roasted malts with some sweetness. Great dark color with a thin dark tan head that left a nice lacing. Smooth and viscous palate with appropriate carbonation. Strong malty backbone with roasted and toasted character followed by hints of molasses and wood. Some light coffee flavors but the hop character was subtle and more of an afterthought. Worth a second trip.

Superb stout. Could be the standard bearer for the style. Coffee and chocolate notes perfectly in balance. Roastiness and sweetness perfectly in balance. Recommended.
