750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 2/20/2010. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark tan head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, molasses, toast, dark bread, tobacco, char, smoke, licorice, raisin, plum, and roasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, molasses, toast, dark bread, tobacco, char, smoke, licorice, raisin, plum, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of roast/char bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, molasses, toast, dark bread, char, smoke, licorice, raisin, plum, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very creamy, smooth, and fairly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is extremely well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an absolutely incredible imperial stout at 4.5 years old. All around fantastic complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and light-moderate dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. An insanely delicious offering.
