Black Flag American Style Imperial Stout

I think I have a new favorite imperial stout. Pours dark with minimal head as any beer of this style should. Smells of bitter chocolate and a hint of burned caramel. Mouth-feel isn't NEARLY as thick as what you'd expect with an 11% imperial stout. Drinks like a much weaker stout, except for the fact that the flavors are turned up to 11. This is NOT a beer for someone afraid of strong bitter stouts, but if you're like me and LOVE strong stouts, but aren't a fan of the fact that many are too sweet/sticky (think Old Rasputin) then you'll LOVE this beer. It's everything a super strong imperial stout should be, and nothing that it shouldn't. Flavors get more complex and grow the more you drink it. A truly great beer.
