Came in a 7 oz. bottle labelled Rogue XS Imperial Stout. Bottled 2000. Has a different picture than what is shown above, but otherwise is presumably the same beer. Pours a deep purplish wine color. At bottom it appears blackish but tapers off to a lovely purple near the rim. Nose is a fruity raisin blended with brown sugar and roasted malt, alcohol apparent but well blended. Mouthfeel is viscous, chewy, coats the tongue perceptibly. Taste is of aged prunes, raisins. A sour finish leading up to a lingering sugary malt taste. Alcohol is well balanced but readily apparent. In all the alcohol is fairly laid back but the taste still packs a wallop. Glad this came in a 7 oz bottle, and at only $3.99 a pop I couldnt recommend this one more, although I cant imagine drinking more than one of these at a sitting.
