I can't believe this is the first time I have had this beer.Pours a jet black except for just a hint of chocolate brown when held to the light,a large fluffy deep beige head atop.Smells like sweet alcohol and dark fruit over top of chocolate and roast.The roast plays a much bigger role on the palate,roasted and charred with caramel and alcohol dipped dark fruit on the palte,I have to say the alcohol lingers.This is an old school favorite and Iam glad to finally try it,it kicks ass.

Bottle.
Appearance: pitch black. Light brown, thin head. Thin lacing.
Smell: prunes, molasses and oak.
Taste: chocolate covered figs with a tobacco and whiskey finish. Alcohol is masked by malts and wood.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation. More so than most beers of this style. Big body. Surprisingly dry.
Overall: great barrel aged imperial stout. Different, but tasty. Will buy again.

Pours black/very dark brown with a large tan head.
Nose shows cocoa, toasty malt, figs and nutty malt.
Flavours include more roast, sweet burnt toast, some pine and resin.
Too highly carbonated.

4.25/5  rDev +2.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: About the color of used 10w30, with a thick tan head of foam that sticks to the glass like glue.

Smell: Chocolate, coffee, roasted malts.

Taste: Roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, hints of dark fruit.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, chewy, and creamy.

The Verdict: Delicious. An imperial stout full of rich dark malt flavor, goes down very smooth despite the high ABV.

Pours black as night with dark brown head. Notes of dark bitter chocolate, burnt brown sugar, and dark coffee. A very satisfying, full-bodied stout. Could not pick up any oak, but the stout was fantastic anyways.

Euology comes through!!

Jet black with a dark tan bubbles
Smells like it should - chocolate and a slight hint of liquorice
Thick mouthfeel
Alcohol and chocolate on the palate
Solid stout..been meaning to try this for a long time.
