'13 Vintage, drank 09/22/14.

A - Very much has that classic stout appearance, albeit at the browner rather than blacker end of the spectrum.

S - Chocolate, vanilla, oaked bourbon.

T - Primarily getting roasted malts, but not much in the way of chocolate, vanilla, toffee, coffee or barrel character.

M - A little tepid and flat.

O - The alcohol is hidden well but it needs a greater depth of flavour. I found it a little weak-flavoured and watery. No residual sweetness. Price is extortionate.

Vintage 2014, corked and caged 12.7 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. Deep black body with a thick nearly two finger dark tan head. A little lacing.

Deep oak aroma accompanied by strong vanilla and lighter dark malt notes.

Rich flavor with roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla and oak being the primary flavors.

Very thick mouthfeel and only a minor note of alcohol. Delicious Imperial Stout that I think will only improve with age.
