2012 Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a tulip glass. This is moderately thick very dark brown, a tan head rises and falls leaving only a small "islands" in the center and a ring around the glass.
The smell of this beer is exceptional, chocolate and brown sugar roasty malts and just enough booze to let you know its a beer.
This is a sweet beer, but the sweetness is balanced with bitter chocolate and molasses, the alcohol is warming and welcomed.
Mouthfeel is nice, moderately heavy for a imperial stout, very smooth, not a "frothing" effect like some RIS's (founders RIS) but the carbonation is good.
I love this beer, I love imperial stouts and this one is in my TOP 5 "non-barrel aged" stouts.
