Starr Hill Cryptical

A friend of mine was nice enough to give this to me a couple weeks ago. Cryptical is a 7.5% Imperial Stout from Starr Hill which is just outside Charlottesville, VA. I'm not totally sure how a 7.5% ABV really makes it an imperial, but hey that's what they are calling it so that's what we'll call it.
Mild nose but there is some clean roast hiding in there. Decent mouthfeel too especially for it's strength. Earthy hops, roast, and a bitter finish make up the body. Nice mix of flavors. This isn't anything people will go crazy over, but it was definitely solid.
