2013 vintage poured into a teku glass.

Pours thick and viscous, but not quite as dark as other imperial stouts as it has lighter hues, at least on the pour. In the glass, a thin oatmeal-colored head quickly forms and dissipates into a sticky and persistent lace. It's a dark temptress that I'm looking forward to drink.

Deep malt aromas meet red wine and work their way to my nose. Heavy oak, vanilla, caramel and dark chocolate all interplay to suggest a slightly boozy oatmeal cookie. I need not emphasize what a splendid aroma that is. 4.5

While still reminiscent of an oatmeal cookie, there's more heat on the flavor and a red wine and port flavor that combines with the oak and barrel flavors for some splendid taste. Not to be missed in these potent characteristics are some subtler dark chocolate and faint yeasty esters. 4.5

Creamy and viscous on the tongue as in pouring and just as low in carbonation, which makes this incredibly smooth and easy to drink. It's impressive. Only a slight bit more heat than I'd want or expect, but I'm still sipping away blissfully. 4.25

This beer is tasty as all hell. So many different flavors find their way into this beer. It's pretty awesome. The heat is a slight issue and the other is the $16 price tag. This think costs more than a dollar an ounce in the bottle, which is pretty wild, I think. 4.5
