SPECIAL RELEASE JANUARY 2011
Super huge thanks goes out to Onenote81 for this sweet hook-up!!!
Review #700(!!!)

This thick, black, liquid gives the slightest hint of dark brown, at the edges, when backlit. The dark brown head of creamy foam is almost a finger thick. The retention is very good, leaving a surface covering film, all the way to the last drink. The lacing is in short strands which are very nicely sticky.

I'm greeted by lots of notes of smoke and leather. Somewhat unexpected, but not at all unwanted. Below these are large hints of cocoa powder, along with milk and dark chocolates and nice doses of chocolate syrup. Light traces of dark fruit sweetness. Big presence of espresso beans. Light trace of anise. A small hint of cherry-vanilla pipe tobacco. Some very earthy hops notes. Light traces of burnt toast scrapings.
I have to say that this nose is much more complex than I'd anticipated.

A huge assault of roasted malts and cocoa powder. Loads of smoke. Tons of coffee and espresso notes. A good deal of bakers chocolate. Light hints of vanilla and dark fruits. Earthy hop notes are providing some balance to the smokey, dark chocolate and coffee notes. Notes of anise, leather and more earthy hops help give the finish a nicely dry touch.
Once again, this is not nearly as one-dimensional as I'd thought that it might be.

This is medium, not-quite-full, bodied and has a low level of carbonation. The tiny bubbles lend a nice touch of creaminess to the already smooth feel of this one. It's very silky.

This is quite tasty and there is no way that I'd guess that it was 9.75%abv, if I didn't know. Way more complex than expected. I'd be a very happy guy if I were ever able to get more bottles of this one!

4.15/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

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!
