A - Not much of a head on this. What is there is dark cocoa colored. Now it's just a ring around the glass and a few bubbles floating in the middle. Body is inky black and completely opaque.

S - Deep, dark chocolate jumps right out. Nice roastiness. Light espresso. Touch of smokiness.

T - Starts off a bit sweet with some light hops riding along. Chocolate comes through with both bittersweet baker's chocolate and a bit of dark chocolate. Coffee comes in, bringing with it some bitterness that seems to be similar to what you would get from a cup of joe. Aftertaste of that coffee bitterness.

M - Medium to full bodied. For how inky this one poured, it didn't seem as full bodied as it could have been.

Overall - Pretty good imperial stout. Not upper eschelon or worth searching high or low for, but certainly don't turn it down if you have a chance to try it.

Price: $2.50 Served In: Snifter
