After taking the bottle out of the fridge, I let it sit for about 10 minutes. I can smell the vinous tones before I even pour it out of the bottle. Black in color with a thick creamy tan head (after a hard pour). Aroma of malted barley, and chocolate. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, coating and extremely smooth. Things start off with a dark choclate flavor and move to a rich vinous taste in the middle, somewhat reminiscent of raisins. Hops make their presence known just before the finish. Bitterness seems appropriate and builds on the dark roasted barley and vinous flavors. Alchohol is not overpowering at all for a 12% Imperial Stout and the drinkability is remarkable. It goes down dangerously smooth. Nicely done!
