22oz bottle from bcrossan (thanks Brian!). Bottled 01/29/2014. Served in a goblet.
Pours a deep, dark chocolate brown with a dense three fingers of sandy tan head. The froth initially has a reverse cascade akin to a nitro pour. It settles oh, so slowly to a thin cap that can be revived with a quick swirl and leaves behind some attractive sheets of lace.
Aromas of dark bakers cocoa, mild char, light coffee, blackened malts and a vague sweetness. Perhaps a little muted but not bad at all.
Flavors lean towards the more roasty and bitter end of the stout spectrum. 70%+ dark cocoa, roasted malts, spent coffee grounds, burnt caramel, a little bit of char and some earth. Very little alcohol precense. There is an ocassional piney/ herbal bitterness that I assume comes from some bittering hops. All in all, this is what I'd expect from an imperial stout with cocoa nibs.
Creamy, medium-yet-weighty feel with carbonation that's a little too far past moderate for my tastes. The finish is quite dry for an imperial stout, laced with bitter notes of espresso and dark chocolate.
My mind isn't blown but I've been wanting to try this for a few years and I'm in no way disappointed. Now I am really stoked to try the bourbon barrel version because I can see this responding well to a barrel treatment. If you enjoy the roasty, bitter stouts then this is certainly worth checking out.

Poured into a snifter, raises a finger of tan head. Head dissipates relatively quickly.
Looks beautiful, black as night. Light doesn't escape.
Smells like dark chocolate, espresso, leather, hint of smoke.
Tastes like a stout...duh. Has a good chocolate backbone, dark fruit, coffee surrounded by some smoky bitterness. Finishes somewhat bitter. May be a little fresh? Leaves a bit of dryness on the palate.
Mouthfeel a little thin for an impy stout of this repute. Carbonation is good, but could use a bit more body.
Overall a good stout, and one worth trying. Price point may be off putting for some, but since mine was a gift, it was well worth it!
