Aroma - is packed with rich espresso roast, oats, and chocolate Appearance - black body, with a 3/4" brown head that quickly recedes to a ring. Taste - is astringent from rich dark espresso roast. There is an abundance of dark chocolate and some alcohol as well. There is also a bit of oat present. Palate - body is full, the texture is thick and creamy, the carbonation is between lively and average, the finish is astringent with heavy roast.

A drinkable & delicious imperial! Pours black w/ a thin mocha head & a ring of lacing. The aroma is roasted notes w/ a hint of chocolate & vanilla. The taste is light roasted coffee up front & follows w/ mild chocolate & vanilla flavor. Complex & tasty, it doesnt have near the bitterness that most imperials carry. Its creamy, sweet, & provides just enough bitterness to let u know that this is a big & powerful brew. Well done!!

Lots of roast and coffee, though not a total coffee bomb. Pours black with good mocha head and lacing. Thick, creamy consistency. A hint of dark chocolate. Good stuff. Bitter finish.
