4.19/5 rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Poured from a growler to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a thick consistency. There was an inch of foam, tan-colored, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.
S: A solid aroma of malt, chocolate, fruit and hops.
T: Tasted of dark fruit, licorice, malt, dark chocolate, and light hops. A big, robust flavor with a lot of character. A very complex and well rounded flavor.
M: A good amount of carbonation with a surprisingly dry finish. Medium- to full-bodied.
O: While this beer doesn't quite live up to its hype, it's still a well made, easy to like beer. Drinkable.

32 oz growler poured into a snifter at cellar temperature.
L – Pitch black color with a 1-finger frothy brown head. Nice retention and some good patchy lacing.
S – There’s a touch of chocolate in the aroma, but I mostly get vanilla, molasses, currants, plums, and a little bit of licorice. There also may be a touch of roasted coffee. It has all the elements of an RIS, but I’m a little disappointed in the lack of chocolate given the name.
T – It starts off sweet with some chocolate, vanilla, and dark fruits. Molasses and licorice come through at mid-taste, and some nice roasted malt characteristics shine through at the finish.
F – Full-bodied with good carbonation for the style, a thick and velvety smooth mouthfeel, and a bittersweet and dry finish. Roasted malt bitterness and dark fruit sweetness both linger for a bit.
O – This is a nice RIS. Due to the name, I was expecting a bit more chocolate, but it has everything you could ask for in a beer of this style. It’s very drinkable especially given the ABV, and has a nice and thick mouthfeel. I think this beer might be a little hyped, but it’s still tasty nonetheless.

OG 2006 bottle, who is this HimerMan character.
Pours completely black, with modest khaki head that immediately recedes to a small cap with some soy sauce looking think lacing.
Aromas begin with bittersweet chocolate, dark toffee, dark fruit and molasses. There is also emerging soy sauce element which sounds off putting but should be expected in small quantities with super aged Imperial Stouts.
The tastes follow the nose with some dark and bittersweet cocoa and a lot of dark fruitiness which I couldn't image was here originally. There is also molasses, treacle, seaweed/soy sauce element as well in the background.
Mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied with low carbonation which is to be expected after all these years. Finish is fairly straight forward, mild cocoa, mild sweet.
Overall I can imagine this being a super revolutionary beer when it was first released but really it is just a good Imperial Stout. It's actually quite drinkable at less than 10% ABV but the flavor profile isn't so exciting that it needs to be sought out each year.
