Very dark opaque pour with a small brown head. A bit thick in body and lightly carbonated. Flavor is coffee, caramel and a bit of prune. A nice hop bite finishes this one nicely. Oh so dark and oh so good.

Dark and delicious. Good aroma. Oaky with a good aftertaste. 8% but doesn't taste like a higher percentage beer.

Bottle, at home. Pours black with rich brown head. Strong, sweet aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Flavor opens smooth and nutty, developing into mild hoppiness balanced with rich malt. Coffee and fruit notes in finish, resolving into sharp, but not quite overpowering, bitterness. Medium mouthfeel, lightly carbonated. Overall, tasty and smooth, fitting for style, not crazy about the finish.

At the movies- Gone Girl. Rare to find a stout that I donít like, but this one didnít live up to rating. Too sweet with odd fruity notes being the prevalent flavor- raisin, plum, berries. Definite toasted malt, chocolate, espresso- everything I want in a stout- in there, but playing second fiddle. Right look/mouthfeel, carbonation for a stout, but taste really off balance for me.

330 ml bottle. Pitch black. Small light beige head. Soy sauce aroma. Oily and thick at first, but body is surprisingly light given the initial onslaught. Well balanced and very rich. Very nice imperial stout. A gentle one. Soft and enjoyable.
