Poured the 12 oz 2010 bottle into an oversized red wine glass to capture the aroma.
A: Jet black with dark brown hues. It poured with a thick milk chocolate head that died to a film and lace quickly.
S: Dark chocolate, molasses, raisins, raspberries, brandy, and oak... the aroma is very sweet with present alcohol. Wow.
T: Oatmeal and milk chocolate, bourbon vanilla, all with fruity raisin and blackberry oak. The alcohol lingers--as opposed to the usual charred flavors of stouts--like a shot of bourbon and rum. Really... my lips are burning from alcohol just as if I took a shot.
M: Mildly syrupy with a very frothy and creamy feel. Not bad.
D: Difficult. One would really be enough.
My final rating probably doesn't do this one justice. I'd put it up there with the best of imperial stouts.
EDIT: Changed "drinkability" score to reflect overall score, which is much higher. This was done with a live review on 03/16/11.
