Served on tap at the brewpub in a 6oz jam jar. Black body of course. Fume and ash come off the nose. Some caramel and acidity as well. Flavor is lightly sweet syrup and a hit of bitterness off the roasted malts. Slightly thinner body for the style with a long bitter roast aftertaste with some light unfermented sweetness. Ok stuff.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2016 At the Restaurant. Im having a hard time with this. It was OK but it really tasted like the just doubled the grain bill of the southside. It wasnt very complex. It was good enough but not great. Serving: Bottle

Samples poured on tap at Goose Island Clybourns Stoutfest 2012 (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich blackish opaque pour, thick body with a rich thicker tannish head, dies to a thick ring. Aromas are roast, toast, and pretzels. Touches of sweetness, caramel, cocoa. Toffee, gentle toast, and dry florals. Initial is medium bodied, a bit under bodied, with cocoa, toffee, touches of roast, ash. Faint anise. Some dry florals. Middle is lacking complexity, a touch of dried fruit, mellow cocoa, and dryness. Finish is a bit dry and thin, more palatable. Touches of anise, toffee, cocoa, roast. Dry floral and earthy hops take the reigns. Interesting and solid, an unexpected beer fro Moonshine. A bit underbodied for the top tier, and more dry hops, a bursting finish would up it. Solid bigger yet dry Impy though.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a heavy lacing throughout. Aroma is big milky chocolate malts with a good amount of roasts. Medium sweet with some hints of dark chocolate and a light earthy hopping. Flavor is similar. Lots of very creamy milk chocolates with a medium sweetness, a solid roast backing, some dark chocolates, a light earthy hopping, and maybe some oats. Finishes rich and chocolatey, but balanced with lots of dry roasts and some earthy hops giving this a medium-light bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a moderate, somewhat creamy carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid and flavorful imperial stout. On the lower side when it comes to ABV% and pretty straightforward, but this had lots of milky dark chocolates and plenty of roasts with a nice earthy hopping to balance. Enjoyable.
