Medium sized, vast and thick and very slowly changing ashy brown head on top of a pitch blak beer.

Flavours of (dark) chocolate, coffee beans, roasted barleys, bitter, coffee roast, some cacoa, wood burn, malt roast, light earth and the slightest hint of something coal a like. Overall a good dark bitter roast.
Aftertaste is a bitter with chocolate, barley malt roast, coffee and some herbal roast.
Low carbo, soft smooth creamy mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture.
Quite basic but very solid. And it’s easy drinkable with a smooth deeper dive... thewolf (12594) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2013

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Very well made American Imperial Stout that is rich and sweet with notes of coffee and chocolate. Very little head when poured into glass from a 22 oz bottle but nice lacing that lingers. Aroma is pure coffee and Bourbon. Color is pitch black and beautiful. skmikeg (1826) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2013
