Many thanks to murrayswine for slicing this bottle my way durng the pre-sale par-tay at Dark Lord Day!
Pours like used motor oil. A not-quite-thin dark tan head pops up quickly, and is very even. Retention is not the best. Held to the light, the blackness gives way to a brownish-ruby aura at the edges. This is the right relationship.
The smell is lovely- like very dark roast coffee right up front. Under that, you can find a bit of dark chocolate, dates, black cherry, hops,and of course, a strong bourbon. It's like spendng a day at Starbucks, with a shoulder flask that's not quite closed...while munching on bourbon balls. ;)
The flavour is similar to the smell, but not quite as fruity and round until the very end. Right off the top, it's coffee again, but spicy and woody. The bourbon hits in the middle, and then the fruity notes come in on the finish. The woodiness seems to stay put throughout. VERY nice.
Slightly more active carbonation than I like in an impy...and the liquid is slightly thinnner and oilier on the toungue than expected.
Drinkable? Oh yeah. But if I gave in to this temptation for more than a couple of bottles, I'd have enough bottled stupid for the entire Prussian infantry- whch by morning, may walk across my tongue in its socks...
