12oz brown silk screened bottle with bottled date of 2001 poured into a 16oz snifter. Wow this pours like oil and is just as dark. No light is getting through this one and a beautiful tan head is present. This is a picture perfect imperial stout. The aroma is heavy with chocolate and coffee and a slight creaminess to it. Very strong taste consisting of roasted malts, chocolate and a bit of coffee. None of the alcohol is present in the taste at all, just a marvelous flavor. Thick bodied as it gets and the drinkability is damn good. The aging of about 3 years has definatly brought this one close to perfection, I have a few bottled in 2003 I will have to try for comparison. One of the best Imperial Stouts I have ever tasted.
