The thick cap of foam held a dark brown hue that laced in sheets along the edges of the glass. The body was a deep black and it poured with moderate thickness.

The aromas were drier with cocoa powder, Graham cracker and a dry chocolate. There was a backdrop of lactose and marshmallow but it assumed a drier front.

The flavors were less diverse as the dry cocoa powder seemed most prevalent. Dry roasted coffee and a Graham cracker maltiness accompanied the cocoa.

The feel is not surprisingly dry but very smooth.

The peripherals to this stout were spot on but the immense dryness didn't suit my expectations.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. February 2012 bottle date.

Appearance - Black body. Big khaki head. Nice thick collar. Eternal surface wisps.

Smell - Roasted malt. Coffee roast. Hint of grassy hops. A little bit of chocolate.

Taste - Dark chocolate. Bitter coffee. Again, it has a hint of grassy hops. Finishes with a very bitter dark chocolate and coffee malt flavor.

Mouthfeel - Very bitter. Medium body. Not very heavy or boozy.

Overall - Well made stout. It isn't all that exciting, but it's tasty.

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.
