Poured a very dark black-brown in color with a light tan head that really stuck around. Carbonation level is fairly low though. Aroma is of dark roasted malts and chocolate with a slight sweetness (caramel?). Flavor is a nice mix of dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, hoppy bitterness and a medium malty sweetness… all of which blend very well together. Sweetness lingers into the finish as does the flavor of chocolate. Not the best Imperial Stout I have had, but quite far from the worst… I’d seek this one out again.
