Very good imperial. A little boozy but very tasty and a great mouth feel. Roasty and creamy.

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #70 (November 2012):

Impressive, layered from start to finish and does not fade even in the last sip. A serious beer. If we could only get more stouts like this it would put the whole “hype” of the style back into perspective and perhaps make the beer geeks realize they should look around a bit harder rather than just ride the hype wave. Kudos to Green Man.

STYLE: American Imperial Stout
ABV: 9.5%
AVAILABILITY: Rotating

LOOK: Pitch black, three fingers of sticky froth

SMELL: Baker’s chocolate, chicory, mild charcoal, raisins, light molasses, burnt figs, hint of alcohol

TASTE: Creamy, semi-silky, full bodied, very malty, even char, coffee, dark chocolate, warming spicy alcohol, dark fruit, modest hopping, semi-sweet burnt finish

Poured from a bottle into a snifter, the beer is almost jet black, with a tan, frothy, foamy, light tan head that settles quickly into a halo of head. Aromas of dark roasted coffee, bittersweet dark chocolate, molasses, charred wood, caramel, hints of smoke, and earthy notes. Very heavy and rich nose. Wow. Flavors are heavily roasted forward, but with more of a blended flavor profile, with the bitter coffee forming a solid backbone, and bittersweet chocolate, caramel, and some creamy sweet notes providing balance. Very tasty and very drinkable. The 9.5% ABV is hidden very well beneath the layers of this brew. More richly sweet notes come out as you drink, with molasses dark sugary sweetness and caramel highlights darting in and out. Earthy notes, and even some hints of tobacco, rough the edges up enough to really define each sip, and allow you to appreciate the experience. Smooth, slightly heavy, and layered body, with a bitter, roasted, and chocolate laden aftertaste. The finish is smooth, with a slightly dry, bitter undertone. This is a beast, and well worth searching out.
