It poured a dark black and gave the same color body. Some nice speckled, block-like lacing formed boxes around the sides of the pint glass, interesting. The smell had dry, roasty cocoa and coffee up front with a slight touch of hops in the background, and some vanilla as the beer warmed. The taste was dry and roasty between the coffee and cocoa and brought back some of that bitter hops. The finish was very dry. The palate was about a medium with nothing harsh on the tongue and fairly drinkable. Overall, this is a hopped up RIS that is very good and I would come back to.

Draft. Aroma: lots of highly roasted malts and coffee, chocolate, toffee, sweet notes.
Appearance: jet black, opaque, tan head with average retention, good lacing.
Flavor: coffee and dark roasted malts dominate, toffee and dark chocolate, nice balancing bitterness, sort of a dry roasty character up front and then a somewhat sweet finish. Well balanced, very drinkable.
Palate: full body, low-medium carbonation, very smooth.
Overall: really nice brew, balanced and flavorful.

The taste is roasted malt, charcoal, mild acidity, nice bitterness, earth, dark chocolate, vanilla and toast with dry, roasty finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Not the most complex imperial stout, but very drinkable. Tasty.

Big dark roasty goodness! Huge aroma, big chewy body and tons of flavor that blends roasted malt, molasses, maple and other things I can’t clearly identify. Great stout!

Bottle. Pours a dark opaque brown black. A bit of brown sugar and coffee in it, with a boozy feel. I wonder if it’ll be better with some time. Still very good though.
