I was not overly impressed the first time i tried this beer, but thank god i gave it another try a year later! a year in the cellar makes a world of difference with this stout. on first taste i found it just big and boring and overly boozy, but after 12 months it has developed tons of complexity, big smooth dutch liquorice, with molasses and brown sugar notes. so good that i am willing to overlook dead frog's terrible packaging. everyone i work with at our private liquor store agrees that this is their new favorite stout

Dead Frog's 'Commander Imperial Stout' @ 10.5% , served from a 650 ml bottle purchased for $8

A-pour is a really dark cola brown from the bottle to near black in the glass , with some Russian red peeking out along the glass edge , with a small tan head leaving a streaky lace along the pint

S-hints of star of anise , brown sugar , has a lot of booze to the nose on the second pour

T-has a sweet boozy start , just a tad watery , not as big a finish as the ABV would suggest

MF-low mild carbonation , full bodied , still thin

Ov-ok/good beer , needs some time in the cellar , raise the question how long do you keep a 'Dead Frog' in the cellar ; )

Tasted hot and thin straight out of the fridge but warming up worked wonders. The beer is quite luscious upon further examination. The chocolate notes appear on the finish and the dryness also helps maintain the drinkability . There are better Impys in BC but this is a triumph for Dead Frog , a cellar star in the future maybe but worth picking up now .
