Consumed at Stone World Bistro, Escondido CA, 05/21/08.
Very, very dark brown. Lots of active carbonation. Thin layer of tan foam sits atop the beer.
Aroma is dark and roasted and malty and delicious.
Slightly oily and chewy. Dark malts and strong chocolate flavors roll across the tongue. Coffee bitterness appears on the end accompanied by a bit of astringency. Lasting bitterness.
This is a very, very good beer.
Serving type: on-tap

Bottled 11/14/12, poured into a snifter
A- pours a thick and viscous pitch black color with a two-finger thick and creamy dark tan head that has good retention, eventually leaving some sticky lace behind, thick and creamy
S- creamy dark chocolate with cocoa powder mix with molasses and brown sugar, smoky malt gives it a smoked meaty aroma, closes out with some woodsy oak
T- dark chocolate and molasses with a hint of dark roast coffee up front, hints of figs & dates, with flavors reminiscent of port wine. The finish is slightly smoky and dry with lingers of smoked, charred meat
M- thick and creamy body with moderate carbonation leads to a thick, creamy and silky mouthfeel, eventually finishing velvety smooth, with just a bit of warmth on the linger
O- absolutely loved the mouthfeel on this one, and it matched nicely with such a big stout

4.23/5 rDev +1.9%

Pours opaque black with cola edges. The big one and a half inch tan head remains as a cap on top that leaves thick curtains of lace.
The smell is of spent coffee grounds, dark chocolate, sweet vanilla and faint black licorice.
The taste is of dark chocolate, black coffee, vanilla, molasses and a hint of dark stone fruit.
The texture is heavy bodied with medium carbonation.
This is a very good example of a classic imperial stout. Big coffee and dark chocolate aroma and flavor. I've passed this one up dozens of times...I was wrong.
