4.05/5  rDev -2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Presentation: 12oz. bottle into a snifter.

A- Deep and dark...essentially black and opaque. Pours with ~1/2 a finger of brown head, which fades quickly to a thin ring and an island of bubbles.

S- Dark, roasty, earthy, coffee....nice. Chocolate/dark fruit/molasses sweetness.

T- Roasty, earthy, coffee, and dark chocolate bitterness. Dark fruit and chocolate sweetness...

M- Moderately low carbonation, with a medium-full feel.

O- Good. Other than being just a tinge lighter in the body than I'd want, this beer is quite stellar.

Future outlook: Good stuff, and a relative value given it's quality and heft...I'll have to snag a few more of these to sock away.

4.45/5  rDev +7.5%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Bottle marked on bottom 3319 73W0657at 50 degrees into standard pint
Aroma very nice roasted malt
Head average (3 cm), creamy, tan, mostly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing excellent, covers entire glass with very small bubbles
Body is dark brown/black, opaque, without any light penetration at the edge.
Flavor of roasted malt; no hops, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate full, creamy, with soft carbonation

When I first had this back in 2008, I rated it as OK. With the further development of my palate, I will have to upgrade this to Outstanding, maybe even to Excellent. The aroma and appearance are definitely excellent while the taste is simply roasted and not complex. This is a great imperial stout.
