look: 3.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

2011 Bottle served in a snifter glass

Appearance: Jet black and opaque. Pours a thin head that quickly disappears. Leaves no lacing on the side.

Smell: Strong oak and coffee bean aroma mixed with tones of silky semi-sweet chocolate. Subtle raisin aromas as well.

Taste: Very creamy. Semi-sweet or dark chocolate balances the slightly bitter roasted coffee flavors. Warming alcohol is present, but well-balanced by the creamy malt. Finish is dark cocoa and coffee beans.

Mouthfeel: Viscous (oily), full bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall: This is absolutely one of the best imperial stouts that I have had to date. A very balanced, drinkable stout. Alcohol is noticeable, but not an impediment to the flavors or the enjoyment of this beer. Thicker body makes this one more of a meal than a beer for a long night out. I would recommend this one to all.
