On tap (nitrogen propelled) at the Pittsburgh location in Homestead. Nice roasty aroma, beautiful rolling nitrogen look with a creamy tan head. No carbonation, just like any other nitro beer. Very dark coffee flavors, Quite strong and bitter. Yes, as oppressive as an imp stout should be. Something like Founders Breakfast. Bitter coffee finish Better try this at the Pgh location if you like impy stout.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2012 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured thick, black and oily with a large tan head that lingered forever and produced good lacing. The aroma was sweetish and roasty with a touch of vanilla. The flavor was sweetish, malty and a bit roasty with light undertones of vanilla, coffee and cocoa. The finish was fairly long and turned a bit dry. Full bodied. Nice.

Enjoyed at the brewpub via draft in a whiskey snifter. The beer pours a oily black color, with a long-lasting tan head. The nose gives hints of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and just a touch of alcohol. The palate is, for a beer of this heft, quite light on its feet. High English caramel malt, dark chocolate, pale and regular chocolate malt mix together in harmony on the tongue. A touch of alcohol also says hello in the mid-palate to finish, but is muted, at most. The finish is fairly clean and semi-sweet. Overall, a very well-brewed example of the style.
