The pour was a thick rich black with a large (2-3 finger) dense medium brown creamy head that lasted a good while, reducing slowly to just a little residue that was left clinging to the glass rather nicely.
The aroma was of a burnt chocolate malt and an earthy leathery yeast with notes of dark chocolate, molasses, roasted coffee, some dark fruit and a very mild alcohol presence.
The taste was malty and sweetly bitter with notes of chocolate and molasses early on, and then became a tad bitterer with a nice dose of coffee and dark fruit with a strong alcohol finish. The flavor lasted a really long time with the coffee, chocolate and dark fruit being present for a while before the alcohol presence became dominant.
Mouthfeel was thick, chewy and full in body with a dry, creamy texture and a nice soft carbonation.
Overall an intensely tasty Imperial Stout that has a lot of flavor and a strong alcohol finish that was hardly noticeable to the nose.
