A - pours a thick motoroilesque dark brown With half a finger of rich darker chocolate head. Good retention, OK lacing.

S - rich chocolate, rosary almost mildly smokey malts, some sweet darker fruits and licorice.

T - Lots of sweet dark fruit and licorafe. Fair amount of chocolate sweetness and a bit of roastyness. Slightly boozy as well. The more I drink the more balanced between the four it gets.

M - not quite full bodied but not too far off, moderate carbonation, good mix of drinkable and sipper.

Note: 2013 Vintage

A: Pours a thick opaque jet black in color with moderate to heavy amounts of gentle visible carbonation along the edges of the glass/surface of the beer and some very dark cola brown highlights. The beer has a two finger tall dense foamy very dark tan head that slowly reduces to a medium sized patch of thick film surround by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate to significant amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Strong aromas of dark roasted malts, bittersweet chocolate, and some lighter notes of anise/licorice. Some lighter notes of dark fruits (plum) and freshly ground coffee with hints of earthy hops.

T: Upfront there are moderate to strong flavors of deeply roasted dark malts and a strong flavor of bittersweet chocolate. That is followed by some light notes of dark fruit (plum), anise/licorice, and fresh coffee. There are light to moderate flavors of earthy and pine hops. Overall there is a light to moderate amount of lingering bitterness.

M: Very full bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Creamy with hints of dryness and alcohol warming in the finish.

O: I really enjoyed this beer - a really nice flavor and aroma with a wonderful body. Overall the alcohol is well hidden and the beer is easy to drink.

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.
