From a bottle, this is the re-brew of toaster 4th anniversary 5 years after they released it so they also call it their 9th anniversary.

The nose is pretty smokey, lots of roasted oats, toffee, a little burnt chocolate, and a little licorice.
The flavor is mostly smoke, burnt malts, oats, bitter dark chocolate. The mouthfeel is fine, but it leaves an anise-like aftertaste that is off-putting.

Overall, pretty good, but not outstanding.

What omnium said!
Great stout. One additional note, this is a bomber, so I had to take a break after my first glass and when I came back, I drank the last bit of warm backwash. It had a really nice anise flavor I didn' pick up in the original pour. I'll be picking up more of these.
Overall - fantastic imperial stout, a real treat for us locals.

Bomber > Tulip Glass

A - Blackest of the black with two fingers of fizzy dark dark brown head, this is the darkest beer I've had to date. Thick lacing, unreal stuff. I had to give this a 5.
S - Aroma is really toned down, and I dont understand how or why. You get burnt toffee, dark chocolate roasts, a little earthiness, and some decent smoke, but its all together kinda subtle.
T - Massive smoke flavor for a non-smoked specific beer. Big roasted and burnt maltiness, dark fruit, fig, dark cherry, very woody, charcoal. Its extremely burnt in flavor. Toaster is an apt name.
M - Bitter, and big, a little metallic, but still good.
O - Really unique beer, I'm glad to have had it, but his is really a niche kinda beer. It seems to be a confused offering, sure its got a big roasted flavor, but I say why not go all out and make it a smoked be....because they already have smokestack.
