Standard 22oz brown glass bomber with a pry-off cap. The label shows the moon twisted into an obovoid shape.
Opaque black body with a nice tan medium bubbled head that leaves beautiful lace and stays well.
Almond, coffee bean, bittersweet chocolate and rough pine hops all get along well together in the scent. Each compliment the other and stands on it's own very nicely.
Coffee bean, bittersweet chocolate and dark bread is quickly followed by a barrage of rough edged pine hops. Excellent aftertaste of hoppy chocolate beans that stays on the palate.
Medium body with a good coating, residual sugars and a dry finish.
Good drinkability. Does not get boring and keeps your tastebuds wanting more.

one of the most oaky examples of this style I have encountered. thin and inky black in color, this beer doesn't have a ton of head, but what it does have is an incredible nose. it smells incredibly oak forward, almost more so than that dark roasted barley or alcohol I smell musty oak, deciduous and pungent. it carries over to the flavor too, but instead of complimenting the stout itself, it sort of takes over. the thinness of body also exacerbates this issue, which gives me a watery feel but a very intense woody flavor, an odd sensation on my palate. bitter in the finish with just a touch of toasted coconut island style flare in there, but there just isn't the depth here of some of the worlds best Russian imperials. I like the intensity of the oak, but it limits drinkability, especially when this warms up. o good beer overall though, and one of boulder beers best offerings really.
