dark but translucent with small white head. Aroma is light malt and old milk. Flavor is not at all roasty but it is milky and acidic, like old skim. Thin, too carbonated, and overall pretty bad. Bottle from some Vegan restaurant in Nashville. Ew.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2010
Bottle. Pour was fairly dark with a medium to dark tan head. Aroma was of chocolate, roast, and light coffee. Flavors were well blended with mostly chocolate and roast, but accompanied by some caramel and very light coffee. Body was medium to full with a sweeter finish. Nice blend and depth of character, but this is more like a robust porter than an imperial stout. Nice brew overall, though,
