Just put on tap at my house. Poured into a 8 oz snifter. Nice dark brown body with brownish tinged frothy head that laces the glass nice. Flavors of burnt chocolate. Metallic components to the aroma and beer that would like resolve with warming. Overall fantastic, strong and enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark beer in the snifter with a foamy, sticky beige head. Dried fruit and alcohol in the nose. Initially this beer has tons of chocolate, dried fruit and sweetened coffee flavors over a confident hop bitterness. As it warms the alcohol comes out with the fruity flavors. It finishes with a sticky caramel sweetness and a long green bitterness. Nice impy stout.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Cincy Beerfest 2014 on Fountain Square. Pours a deep, mostly opaque brown with a small tan head. Notes of chocolate, roast, nuts, earth, toast, faint coffee, and a very faint note of dried dark fruit - simple and straightforward overall. Medium-bodied, with moderate to medium carbonation and a really malty mouthfeel that has some bitterness in the back end. Good, up-the-middle imperial stout.
