This is a welcome winter blues blast for me.
A lovely dark cola with a brown head a nice amount of lacing. Aromatics include heavy coffee and chocolate with a significant char. Flavor follows suit with sweet roasted malt and lots of coffee and chocolate. Finish is clean and dry with a fuggles/golding signature. Weight is lightly heavy with an oily character. Sweet and malty in the front with a delicious overall drinkability. A plate of
cheeses of various character and time to enjoy this superb beer

Sampling a cellar temp bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a dark cola black with tan frothy head of 3 cm that fades to a sturdy edge layer and streaks of wispy islands on the surface.
Aroma is fairly mild with some roasted malt and a bit of dark chocolate maybe a little earthy malt but the nose is mild.
First sip reveals a average body with fine yet robust carbonation that boosts the mouthfeel of the beer.
Flavor is roasted malt, brown sugar, dark choclate and molasses, I also get some booze and a bit of an earthy hop presence. Also a little anice or black licorice makes its presence known as I ip the beer. Slightly warm as it goes down the gullet.
The beer is an okay imperial stout, but the aroma is certainly more mild than I anticipated when I opened the bottle.
Not a bad or flawed beer, it drinks pretty easy, but I admit to being a little disappointed as I finish it off.

12oz bottle into a Cigar City snifter.

Pours a rich, 2 finger dark mocha head with decent retention. Beer is pitch black. Lacing is stringy and layered with great stick. An excellent looking beer.

Nose is liquorice, chocolate, smoke, roast, cocoa and fudge. A light booziness sweetens the background a bit. Real solid.

Opens chocolate, cocoa, liquorice and smoke. Roast and espresso in the middle mixed with more chocolate, booze and coarse smoked malt. End is sweet with some hints of dark plum and other fruit. Coarse and slightly hot finish with a sticky chocolate, liquorice, and roast aftertaste. Pretty good.

Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth but a bit boozy in the mouth and goes down rich and warm. Finishes thick and silky with a messy, lingering aftertaste. Solid.

This beer is a pleasant surprise after a couple of misses by Captain Lawrence. Certainly worth trying and one of the better offerings of the style from a NY-based brewery.
