Thanks to Wowcoolman for sharing this one at NoSignsOfPain's birthday bottleshare hosted by mrbubbler.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a thin cap on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, and some char aromas. Taste is much the same with a fairly high level of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp but medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with some solid aromas and flavors.

Enjoyed this side by side with Olde Rabbit's Foot. This bottle, courtesy of kbutler1. Thanks Kevin for the chance.

2010 release. Bottle # 27/1000

Pours a deep black, with a surprisingly light colored head sitting on top. Retention is good and manages to leave some nice lacing.

They weren't kidding with the chocolate in this one. Very chocolatey on the nose, with a lightly roasted malt hangin on strong in the background. Was expecting it to be hoppier as it's so fresh, but it wasn't.

Taste is just like the nose, lots of roasted malts and chocolate, with any bitterness coming from the roasted malts, thanks to the lack of hops. Tastes great, but I feel it's lacking something.

Not as heavy as I thought it would be, about medium in body. Soft feel with a carbonation that might be just a tad to high for the style. Drinkability is good.

Overall, definitely a good RIS, but I just don't think it lives up to the hype. Granted, this is a fresh bottle and I can see this getting better with age, but it's not like it was too hot or anything so how much better is it really going to get? I've been told previous years were fantastic. Anyways, I think the four of us were split down the middle, two liked this better and two liked Olde Rabbit's Foot better. For the record, I liked Olde Rabbit's Foot better.

A: poured a dark as night black in color with a nice finger worth of head which was dark brown and left plenty of lacing sticking to the glass.

S: not too much going on in the aroma, pretty basic components such as roastiness, some chocolate notes, maybe a hint of molasses and very muted coffee undertones. I did however get some oat grains coming through.

T: like the aroma it carried over to the flavor consisting of milk chocolate notes, slight coffee was noticeable, a bit of roastiness, hints of molasses, and nice oat grain accents with a little bitterness.

M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a sweet, roasty, slight astringent, oat grainy, milky, and slight bitter finish.

O: just an average imperial stout that is IMO way overrated but just OK all around. Didn't see anything special about it.

Poured up black in color with a tan head. Pretty decent head retention given the style.

Aroma was dominated by bitter roast malt with strong notes of coffee and a hint of chocolate, a bit of smokiness.

Taste followed suit with a light sweetness with the smoke presence at the beginning followed by a strong dose of coffee flavors and burnt malts.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied, but pretty smooth.

Overall, it is quite tasty, and I enjoyed drinking it, but I really don't think it's anything to wait in line for or something.
