4.19/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

My bottle designates alcohol content as 7.5% not 9.5%.

Capped 750ml bottle pours into a La Fin Du Monde oversized snifter. Pitch black in color with a rather dark and frothy, cappuccino colored head of at least one finger in size. Plenty of lacing adorns the glass.

Full of coffee, chocolate, and roasted grains in the nose. Minimal fruitiness, but the overall aroma is rather subtle; nothing is overly noticeable, therefore the overall feel is lacking. Some alcohol sweetness.

Nice balance in the flavor. Starts with coffee and sweet malts, figs and raisins. Finishes strong with bakers chocolate and chocolate cake. Quite complex and delicious. Espresso Coffee roast finally comes to life long after consumption. This beer has a flavor that evolves second by second, each second different than the previous. Very nice!

Silky smooth mouthfeel with the alcohol well hidden (although it is fairly low for the style anyway). A real coffee and chocolate treat. Really enjoyed this one.

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.

2013 batch. Bottle states 7.5% ABV, must be much lighter nowadays (current listing and picture says 9.5%)

A: Pours a nice pitch black. Big, fluffy, effervescent head. Head takes forever to fade away. Nice spiderweb lacework. Great head retention.

S: Nice roasted malt notes. Dark chocolate covered coffee beans. Touch of char and a decent amount of anise.

T: Nice bitter coffee and dark chocolate up front. A little charry with hints of anise in the middle. Whatever sweetness there is runs out and you get more of a pure baker's chocolate in the finish. Lingering dark chocolate between sips.

M: Medium bodied, smooth. Silky almost.

O: A pretty simple stout with just roasted malt flavors (sorry, been drinking a lot of barrel aged/adjunct added stouts lately so I'm a little warped). Great smooth and well integrated flavors. Very tasty and goes down easy. Very nice.

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.

The 2013 batch which is 7.5% ABV.

This pours out a completely pitch black color with a finger of dark, roasted head.

The aroma is full of roasty malt notes, bittersweet dark chocolate, some coffee, a hint of smoke and some caramel.

The taste is mainly dominated by the big, roasty malt notes that are followed by a bittersweet dark chocolate that is very rich. There is some coffee, but it's not overwhelming and a little bit of caramel, some vanilla and a hint of smoke.

The body is full and the mouthfeel is slightly creamy. The ABV is completely hidden.

This is a very easy to drink Imperial Stout that has a lot of nice traditional notes, but it's a little too straightforward not complex enough to be amazing. Definitely worth trying though!
