4.13/5  rDev +6.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a snifter. Not much of a head, but what amassed was a deep tan. Slight lacing. While I've have better stouts, this one holds its own. Some nice chocolate and oaky tones to it.

12%??? Really? Drinks no tougher than 7 or 8%. I always appreciate that in a stout. I'm sure this'll sneak up on me once I'm done.

4.15/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Date: 3/26/14
Location: Skibbo's
Glassware: Tulip
Appearance: Pours black with nearly no head. What little carbonation there is is light brown. Very little cling.
Aromatics: Some coffee, bitter chocolate and a lot of sweet. Malts in the back.
Flavor: Starts with the coffee flavor and bitter chocolates. A boat load of carbonation moves us into the sweet chocolate. Cocoa. And the beer gets sweeter with time
Finish: The finish isn't that strong. Some of the coffee and cocoa. Some of the carbonation but not a lot of any of it.

4.11/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured into fluted snifter; jet black with a big fizzy mocha head that fades after a bit leaving some foam on top and a nice ring around the edge. No lacing.
Smell is dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate and cocoa, with a hint of sweeter chocolate.
Taste is huge; big roasted malt, booze, dark fruit, subdued sweetness. Finish leaves you reeling, sticky bitterness and sweetness all wandering around in a boozy haze.
Mouthfeel is huge, slick, and full.
Overall this is a good example of an imperial stout. Big in flavor, body, and %abv, although it's not super-complex or anything.
