3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very slight head; very dark brown, very nearly black, color to the beer.
Aromas of roasted coffee, molasses and alcohol. Some smoke/tar/charcoal aromas also. The hops are pretty much swamped by the roasted malts, as is often the case with Imperial Stouts.
Body is full, with a creamy and slightly oily texture. The carbonation is average. The finish is long with the roasted flavors. The sweetness and alcohol are quite prominent.
Overall a very good beer, though lacking the body and complexity of the really outstanding Imperial Stouts.
