375ml bottle purchased from local Heinen's for $5.99/bottle. No bottle dating but latest release.

Dark black to opaque elixir poured into Hoppin' Frog snifter. Thick, mocha, two finger head, thick lacing.

Complex aroma built around roasted malts, caramel, nut, spice and mild char. Hints of coffee and chocolate.

Initial bitterness smoothed by a velvet toasty chocolate, some char on the back end. The nutty, caramel flavors are muted by the heat.

Medium to heavy mouthfeel, a bit oily but overall fairly smooth.

Very nicely balanced between the malt and hops but the alcohol is a bit too in front and masks the flavors so prevalent in the aroma. I have a bottle in the cellar and look forward to revisiting this brew in a year.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured into a 8.5oz. snifter

A- The stream of the pour was dark brown with a slight reddish tint to it. Once in the glass it is pretty black with only a slight tint of that reddish brown when held to the light. One finger medium brown head.

S- Dark dried fruits, alcohol, dark chocolate, not really getting any walnuts, the alcohol coming on a bit strong.

T- Very alcohol forward, then dark fruits of dried dates and cherries, dark chocolate, getting some of the walnut in the finish, aftertaste of coffee/chocolate acidity.

M- A medium fullness, slightly syrupy, definite sipper.

O- A nice Imperial stout, was hoping for more nuttiness, too much alcohol flavor, could probably due with about a year of age on it.
