22 oz. bottle, pours jet black with a medium foamy light brown head. Aroma is very roasty and chocolatey, with loads of woody, roasted malt, chocolate brownies, not much barrel presence, and a considerable hoppiness factor. Flavour is very woody, roasty and hoppy, with chocolate brownies to start, shifting to a very pronounced woody mid-flavour, finishing quite hoppy and bitter - slight boozy finish as well. Quite harsh with some jagged edges, though it’s solid overall. Becomes more and more harsh with each additional sip making drinkability low.

A: An incredibly nice looking pour on this beer, plenty of tan foam with a viscous black liquid underneath.
S: The nose is full of the usual suspects for an imperial stout. Coffee, bitter chocolate, and roasted malt with a slight smokiness to it.
T: The flavor pretty much mimics the nose. A nice coffee and roasted malt character with some notes of chocolate with a definite bitterness and some light smoke.
M: Quite a full bodied beer with a low level of carbonation and a creamy feel on the tongue.
D: For a fairly high ABV and a rather bold style, this one is fairly easy to consume and was a pretty interesting beer overall. A pretty solid offering from Speakeasy. bhensonb (15505) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2012
