4.3/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Bottle (I believe it is a 2011 vintage but there is no bottle date) in to HFS sniffer

A: pours black as night with almost no carbonation definitely motor oil status there is the smallest bit of mocha lacing on the outside but other then that there is no head to speak of. It is also completely opaque with literally almost no light coming through.

S: There is not much to smell here at all I do get a scent of dark fruits and hints of alcohol but that is about the only thing that I can smell

T: The taste does not really follow the nose at all as there are some hints of dark fruit in the opening there is a much larger presence of mocha flavor that is definitely more toward the dark chocolate side then coffee but the coffee does have a fairly solid presence throughout. This taste of mocha chocolate builds then slowly fades with some hints of the dark fruit coming back but mostly just the mocha flavor which fades slowly and lasts for a fairly long time after each sip

M: The mouthfeel is smooth and very oily there is very little carbonation, but the alcohol is hidden very well for 12.5% I can't detect it at all, this makes it very drinkable for such a big imperial stout.

O: This is a really good beer from the scent i was concerned but this is a well balanced not overpowering but very tasty big imperial stout. All I can really say is well done if you like a big tasty imperial stout give this a try it is a very solid representation of the style and quite enjoyed it.
