thick oily mouthfeel. i don’t get a lot on the aroma - maybe some roasted malts. pour is dark, pretty but with little carbonation. overall this is a pretty run of the mill imperial stout. it checks all the boxes, but doesn’t blow me away.

Bottle. Dark brown pour with a kaki head. Chocolate and caramel aromas. Tasty with chocolate, caramel, and roasted malt highlights. Above average body and mouthfeel. A very nice imperial stout….

Black as motor oil. Very chewy. Nice malt, not roasty, but a slight honey aroma that imbues the flavor as well. Quite good!

Bomber to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a fairly opaque dark cola with thin beige head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, and coffee roast with a touch of honey. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer!

draft poured opaque brown to almost black. coffee colored head. dark roasted malts and coffee in aroma and flavor plus chocolate and more coffee in the flavor. solid imperial but still kind of middle of the road which is fine gives good representation of style.

This beer may suffer from the fact that it is a 10.5% imp stout drank on the 4th of July at the beach after eating 3 burgers. but man this was tough to finish. Huge syrupy sweet beer with a lot going on. Sweet caramel and big bold coffee and cocoa notes. Smooth but thick and sweet.
