Bottle. Thick black pour with thin mocha head. Aroma is raisin, char, licorice, fudge and marshmallow. Taste is similar and adds some toffee. Rich sticky mouthfeel but leaves a slightly buttery feeling on the lips. Great.

alexsdad06 (6883) - Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bottle from Party Source at home. Pours a dark cola brown color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have dark chocolate, dark fruits, cherry, raisins, light roasted malts, caramel, and hints of coffee, smooth lower carbonation, I find many European Imperial stouts to be less roasty and not as enjoyable overall.

Aroma of caramel and cappucino. Dark colourd,lots of yeast parts in my glass and an off white head. Pretty sweet, cherry and hoppy citrus flavour. Alcoholiv and hints of caramel, rasins, chocolaye and coffee. Pretty good.
