12 oz bottle pours an oily pitch black with a dark brown, foamy head. Dark roast, chocolate, some sharpie marker, licorice, and a hint of DMS. Slick, oily mouthfeel. More licorice, red apple, some burnt wood in the flavor, with a warming alcohol burn going down. Decent but unspectacular.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of charred wood, ash and molasses. Appears opaque black with a creamy brown head. The char and molasses follow into the taste but are tempered by sweet dark chocolate and cherry and fig flavors. The texture is very creamy but the charred component and possibly the hops cut through that a bit. The alcohol becomes evident mid-sip but is well received given the heavy flavors and textures here. Finishes with more chocolate sweetness, charred wood and a lasting bitterness. Very good Imperial stout if maybe a little heavy on the roasted malt.
