Bit of a Christmas pudding. Quite sweet, molasses, dried fruit, some Mighty imp liquorice ( though not overpowering) and chocolate cocoa powder. Very good but not best imperial stout

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 Smooth and creamy dark chocolate, molasses and mild coffee notes. Nice levels of hop and alcohol that balance very nicely. A great overall brew

Pours a black color with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet with molasses and chocolate. Also had some roasted malts and slight warming. Flavor is the same with more of the alcohol warming.

Black. Cherry tobacco, mineral, mild cocoa, mild roast, sweet caramel, herbal. Same taste, on the sweet side, syrupy some, some hot heat. Not as good 2017.
