Big thanks to G311 for this one.
A - It pours a perfectly sinister black; it is an oily abyss impervious to light. A thick crown of camel-colored froth is produced from a moderate pour, the head is long-lived and leaves copious remnants of lace as it collapses.
S - My initial impression assures me that this is at least a solid brew; the nose is very rich and also well-apportioned. Chocolate, coffee and charred, peaty molasses flavors are established by the aromatic malt. The booze is ultra-covert at 12.5%, you'd never know.
T - The suggestions of the nose are acutely transposed to the flavor palate. This brew is a delicious showcase of the flavor range and capacity of malt. Smoked, roasted, charred, toasted, and raw maltiness converges to produce sublime notes of coffee, chocolate, cocoa, burnt toast, black licorice and peat. The oak addition may impart a very slight vanilla nuance and perhaps contributes to the invisibility of the 12.5% ABV, but it is not pronounced as a specific flavor.
M - Creamy and nicely carbonated, but it could finish a bit nicer (with less acridity.)
D - This is so nice, all-around. And you'd never know it had such a high ABV by the taste or smell... Thanks VG, for the hook-up, this was a good one.

This beer reminded me of a lighter version of Plead the 5th. It was lighter in aspects including taste, mouth feel, color and body. Thinner than I would have thought considering the percentage of alcohol. The smell was pretty decent with chocolate, light roasted malt and booze coming to the forefront. Not a terrible imperial stout by any means, but lacking that punch of flavor I look for in a big stout.
