On tap in a tulip .... Pours dark and smokey with a tight tan head. The legs are persistent. There is chocolate in the aroma as well as toasted malt and vanilla, which odd but very nice. The flavor is a sweet chocolate caramel with a subtle bitter bite around the cheeks.

22 oz bomber. Tasted on 10/30/14. Beer from Total Wine Dallas,TX. Pours to a jet black color with a dark tan medium head. The aroma was great with a ton of roasty dark chocolate, espresso, dark fruits& some good notes. Great flavor that is similar to the aroma. Great balance to hide the 10%ABV. Very good stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours out incredibly black and opaque with a head of thick, dark tan. An interesting take on an Imperial Stout with big robust and heavy roasted notes. A bit sweet and fruity in the middle with nice coffee and espresso notes. A bit of dark chocolate with nice heavy robsut notes. The finish is bitter with robust malts, light alcohol boozy notes and big in the mouthfeel. Overall a huge brew that satisfies my Imperial Stout craving.
