Pours black with high beige head. Aroma and taste are of roasted malt, caramel, sweet. Sligthly bitter in the finish. Palate: Medium-full bodied. Overall: Not my, but I would not get out of my way to drink it again. Still a pretty decent IS.

Pours raisin brown, thin persistent head and delicate lacing remains. Roasted malt dominates, with tones of raisin and a slight touch of chocolate. A tad more carbonated than most stouts, which with the lighter flavor makes this come off almost like a porter. Nice and drinkable, certainly wouldn't kick it out of bed, but not extraordinary.

Nose of dark fruit - dates, prunes, raisins and hints of roasted malts and chocolate. Pours a deep black with a dark tan, mostly lasting tan head and spotty lacing. The taste has a rich bittness to it with a slight hint of sweetness. Dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, with hints of coffee and port. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, an excellent imperial stout. This would be an interesting after dinner drink.

far too mellow a flavor profile for me to enjoy considering the label of an imperial stout. on the other hand, i would recommend troubadour’s obscura, aptly labled a ’mild stout’.
