Poured opaque since the blackness was so dark. Foam was brown but barely enough to mention. Retention was less as it quickly became nothing but a ring around the glass edge. Lacing is slight and blotchy.
Aroma is dark fruits: maybe plum and raisin. Dark roasted malt with chocolate undertones. Seems to be some sweetness: molasses, as it seems big and thick. I get a fair amount of alcohol, almost bourbon.
Taste is rich malt with roasted malt giving off coffee and chocolate, leaving a bitterness to the finish. Dark fruits are there to add another layer of complexity.
Big body with a nice carbonation. Almost has a creaminess to the mouth but dries.
A quality imperial stout that I could like frequently. The alcohol is well hidden with really good flavor and aroma. One of the cheaper imperial anythings I have had and it is well worth it. Enjoy!
