This bottle is from 2008. No date on the bottle.
Pours pretty much jet black with a thick tan head. Very dense and about as dark tan as I have ever seen.
Intense roasted malt character. Candied fruits come through even though this is starting out very cold.
I would think this imperial stout would have mellowed out a bit over the years but that doesn't appear to be the case. Tons of dark chocolate, molasses, toffee, figs, and obviously a dark roasted coffee. There is a lingering acrid bitterness. I'm not sure if that comes from the hops, roasted malts or the coffee.
Huge mouthfeel. Very viscous. Easy to drink throughout. There is so warming alcohol notes and the 10.9% is evident but doesn't detract from the overall beer. This is just a delicious imperial stout. I need to find a fresh bottle for a good comparison.
