Well made, faultless english style IRS. No pointy edges ,very smooth. All the classic flavours. Perhaps not as vibrant as the classics, but a well presented package.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a creamy tan head that left soapy lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate, coffee and had some notes of fruit. Flavor was lightly sweet and bitter with dark chocolate, roasted coffee, dark fruit, molasses and had a touch of toffee. Full bodied soft carbonation creamy texture. Excellent impy stout

Nice black color, good head and lacing lasting several minutes, not much on the nose, taste very complex, sweet up front holding on for quite a while, then a quick bitter finish. Really liked it in the mouth!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz. bottle. Pour is black with a chocolate ice cream head and very good lacing. The head retention in this is about 4 minutes. Smell is dark roast with a big smoke note with bakers chocolate and a bit of coffee. A touch of booze on the nose. Taste is rich, dark, very smokey and chocolatey. Bittering hop note at the end with a touch of coffee. Much like a smoked porter except bigger, more viscous and complex. Almost like a BBQ stout, very different and very good.

An alright imperial stout, actually pretty impressive for leinenkugel. Has a little too much sweetness to it.

2oz sample at International Great Beer Expo (Meadowlands). Pours black with almost no head. Aroma of roasted coffee, dark chocolate, caramel malt, and booze. Taste is much the same. Sweet caramel, toffee, dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and some warming alcohol.
