This beer was just okay. Nothing special. Got it in a trade and would not buy it myself.

12.7oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours almost black with barely any light getting through; small tan head that fades leaving little lacing and retention. The aromas are very nice. Tons of dark chocolate. Some dark fruit in the mix. The flavors are very rich and sweet. The Belgian cadied syrup becomes alive and even gives the nose some sweetness as well. I'd say the syrup seems to be the star and gives this beer a unique identity. It's not quite cloyingly sweet, but it's definitely on the sweeter side. There's a subtle roastiness. There's a strong earthiness in the finsh, possibly due to the walnuts. There's a very subtle warmth, but it's definitely not hot or boozy at all. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's not motor-oil thick, but it's not thin. Alcohol basically goes unnoticed. Easy to drink, but makes a great sipper.

This is a great stout. It's nice and rich. Complexities become even more noticeable as it warms. Well executed.

375 ml bottle into snifter, 2014 vintage bottling. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger dense dark brown head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, molasses, toffee, toast, nuttiness, dark bread, raisin, plum, light licorice, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, walnuts, and moderate dark fruit notes; with good strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, molasses, toffee, toast, dark bread, nuttiness, raisin, plum, light licorice, light smoke/char, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roast/char bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, molasses, toffee, toast, dark bread, nuttiness, raisin, plum, light smoke/char and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, walnuts, and moderate dark fruit flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy, smooth, fairly slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome imperial stout. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, walnuts, and moderate dark fruit flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.
