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.

Poured from a 22 oz. bomber into my Mad Elf chalice.

Deep black body with a very thin tan head which dissipated quickly and would return with a swish of the glass. No light shines through when held up to the light.

Aromas of licorice, espresso and unsweetened chocolate and some alcohol.

Tastes of dark char, roasted malts, chocolate, espresso, burnt molasses. Coats our tongue in that deliciousness. Alcohol bite is there at the end as it warms up. No doubt about it, when you're drinking this you're drinking a Big Bad stout!

Really just a great stout, big bold, tasty. Thick and bold with the mouthfeel, but not too heavy that you can't drink the whole bomber yourself. If you like your stouts big, go find yourself a bottle, you won't be disappointed.

Poured from the very stylishly decorated bomber into a very tall, very large and wide mouth champagne style glass.

A: Black and still. Rocky two finger head that supports the bottle cap subsides into a 1 mm ring. Opaque in clarity. This brew has huge legs. It is definitely a potent, richly colored brew.

S: It has that indication of a chocolate covered, salted caramel pretzel. It's huge nose is filled with these very nice odors. Slight vanilla notes peek around the edges.

T: Perfectly follows nose. Amazing warming sensation combined with wispy vanilla from the oak. The oak does not intrude and assault, like Weyerbacher Insanity if you have had that. It complements everything perfectly like oak should.

M: Velvety smooth draught with very slight prickly notes on tip of tongue. Strongly roasted malt interplays with the moderate carbonation to provide a very smooth experience. It's a little hot, and I bet some cellar aging would not reduce the heat. It is not unbalanced heat, just comes in and says "Hi, remember I am a double big stout"

O: On point. If you like huge RIS or big charred malty American double stout beers and can get this, do it. Well worth the price I paid (under 10 for a bomber).
