Looks like a proper stout - deep black with a creamy brown head. Tastes quite rich, with a bit of coffee and maybe chocolate.

cheap (4677) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2015
Look, I don’t like real imperial stouts so if you do, take my numbers for an on style impy stout. Big and black. Scummy looking head. Yes, from the start this is terribly on style. wew. Big rude roto-tiller thang happening. Nasty Nellie black mouth coating beer. Difficult for my girlie lager loven taste buds to understand. Not impressed but its on style fer sure.
