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.

Wow.

Friends poured his beauty at a small gathering/bottle share.
Pour is mahogany, what slight head there was dissipates quickly.
Nose is nutty, a bit of molasses, chocolate, and maybe dry fruit.
Taste is amazing. Malt comes through with a bit of cocoa, caramel, dried fruit, definitely walnuts, and just a hint of roast.
Finish is much the same with a gentle nuttiness lingering with the sweet.

Great. Sisd-by-side with the rum barrel version. This blows the rum version away.

poured into a snifter

A- pours a nearly pitch black color with a small foamy light-tan head that reduces completely leaving some film floating on top

S- very nutty aroma from the addition of the black walnuts, Belgian candied sugar sweetness mixes with some earthy smoke and chocolate

T- nutty flavor follows the nose with the candied sugar sweetness, hints of chocolate and roast, slightly earthy, complemented by the walnuts, it actually drinks more like a Belgian stout

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a sightly foamy mouthfeel and a silky finish

O- nice nutty notes in a very drinkable stout, the addition of the Belgian sugar adds a new dimension as well
