A big thanks to Dan for this one. Served in a snifter. Reviewed from notes 10/7/14

Pours minimal head. Beer is pitch black and opaque. Lacing is spotty and sparse but the legs are slick, oily, and coat the glass nicely.

Aroma is a roasted malt, smoke, chocolate, sweet soy sauce, prunes and peat. Robust and very unique.

Opens sweet soy sauce, prunes, raisin, and other dried dark fruit. Notes of chocolate, roast, cocoa and peat emerge towards the middle complemented by a distinct anise, wood and tobacco flavor. Really unique and nicely complex.

Medium bodied with low carbonation. Slick and smooth in the mouth and silky going down. Moderately clean finish with a slightly lingering aftertaste.

A good beer but one that you have to go into with a certain mindset. Unlike any other imperial stout I've ever had and certainly worth trying.

25 cLass bottle poured into a wine taster. 2006 bottle.

Appearance - Viscous black. Small khaki head. Very thin collar.

Smell - Wow. Very oaky. Deep dark chocolate. Roasty coffee. A little bit of smoke. A green woody aroma. Almost like cedar.

Taste - Incredible. Intense roasted malt. Coffee. Bitter chocolate. Smokey flavor. Licorice. A little bit sweet. Sherry. Woody. It's not really oak, again more of a cedar. But not quite.

Mouthfeel - Medium low carbonation. Exceptionally smooth and easy to drink.

Overall - This got more complex and enjoyable as it warmed. Unbelievable beer.
