Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a dark brown color with a medium frothy tan head that mostly lasted with very good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, chocolate malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer exceeded my expectations.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Taste from a 500ml bottle, big thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Black color, with a thin ring of khaki head. Dots and bits of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of chewy, lighter carbonation, lightly slick. Good dark chocolate, toasty aromas, biscuit, moderate roast, hint of coffee, hint of oxidization. Touch of smoke. Moderate-plus bitter taste, moderate sweet. Nice, enjoyable imperial stout. Hides the alcohol well.
