Can't find a bottle date, but I can find a clean snifter glass.
Pours as black as black is black. Couldn't scrounge a tall foam cap, even with a height pour. Mocha-colored head fell and dispersed pretty quickly with some surface asteroids.
Roasty coffee sweet with a big ol' chocolate bar thrown in for good measure. The heat's there, but it's decently toned down. Flan custard and vanilla, too. Pretty decadent nose on this beer.
Get-go bitterness from the char-roast. Huge chocolate and coffee notes dominate this one. Burnt sugars, herbal hops, and some peatiness. There's some noticeable butterscotch in the late middle that turns to candy in the finish. Nice addition of smoke that peeks in-and-out throughout the whole experience. No real blatant taste of alcohol, just the effects and warmth. Really well-done.
Medium-full body with a light carbonation. Well-disguised alcohol, but you know it's there (like me, who is finishing the bottle by his lonesome) after awhile.
Kudos to Voodoo! A phenomenal I.S. I thought it might be a little over-the-top, but this makes a nice package. Look forward to aging my other bottle.

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.
