750mL bottle from Bruisin Ales (Asheville, NC). 19.99. Brewed 9/25/11, bottled 2/2/12. Served in a Three Floyds teku.

Pours dark brown, slightly translucent ruby highlights around the edges with two fingers of tan head. Head recedes to some wisps on the surface and a thin halo that leaves spotty lacing.

Smells roasty with cocoa, plums and a little coffee.

Taste is a soft smooth blend of bitter sweet dark chocolate, dark stone fruits, mild burnt caramel, creamed coffee, slight pine, subtle funk and just a bit of booze.

Creamy, smooth medium full body with mild but present carbonation. Long bitter cocoa and burnt coffee finish.

The best thing I've had from Green Man but for the same price as a bottle of Hunahpu it falls short. A well brewed classic take on imperial stout with nothing to really make it stand out. Certainly good and worth a try but I can't see myself spending that much for another bottle in the future. That said, I made the whole 750 vanish by myself.

2013 vintage. Tasted 10 March 2014.

Pours black and thick, just a bit of brown at the very edges. 1.5 fingers of deep brown head; good retention, excellent lacing. Pretty darn solid.

Smell is on the faint side for a big stout. What's there is rich, woody and mildly sweet roasted malts. Some cocoa, a bit of coffee, and a hint of char. But mostly it's rich and deep and sweet.

Taste is really nice at times, a little lacking at others. The first sip gushes with coffee and milk chocolate, followed by a touch of woody char. But other sips come through thin and just not all that flavorful. It's half really good, half meh.

Feel is excellent. Thick and chewy, as it should be, with carbonation that spikes and then fades, setting things in motion and then backing off to let the flavors play their roles. Stellar.

A good imperial stout. It has some strong character, but a few weak patches in the smell and taste bring it down for me. If it were as good across the board as it is at its peak, it would be outstanding.

Tap at Duckworths. Maybe not the darkest, but a dirty dark brown. Light tan head. Stuck to the glass pretty well.

Aroma, roast malt, some dark chocolate. I don't get a ton out of this, but I always seem to have this issue at Ducks so I'll give the benefit of the doubt.

Taste, nice chewey roast malt, chocolates. Some faint file red fruit. Finish has more roast, anise, and a minor piney note.

Solid medium body, low near creamy carbonation. Pretty coating. Little alcohol presence.

A nice take, everything you would expect is nicely present. Wouldn't spring for a 750 of this, but worth it on draft.

750mL bottle (2013, 7.5%) poured into a Duvel glass...

A: Pours black, perhaps black-brown when held to light; about two fingers of thick, light mocha head recedes to a buttery layer that leaves some serious sheets of crusty, sugary lace; all of the info on the bottle is nice, too.

S: Dark chocolate; roasted notes; semi-sweet chocolate; caramel notes, too.

T: Sweet malts; blackstrap molasses; light toffee and dark chocolate; pretty minimal hop bitterness makes for a pretty sweet stout... maybe a touch too sweet; more hop character or roasted malt flavor would help cut the sweetness of this brew.

M: Whoa... awesome! Thick and full-bodied... creamy, like a milkshake almost; carbonation is on the lower side. Only complaint is that it leaves the palate a little sweet / sticky - a touch of dryness would make the feel perfect.

O: A really nice stout - don't know if I'd call it "imperial" at 7.5%, but regardless of style, its pretty tasty. Stouts definitely don't look any better or have a better feel. Over-sweetness is what brings it down a notch for me.
