From the 22 fl. oz. bomber - 2012 batch. sampled on February 9, 2013.
The pour is black with a modest, silky brown head that settles down after a moment to a ring around the glass.
Loads of interesting aroma including dark roasted malts, currants or other dark fruits, coffee, and a mellow hop note that some might think is alcohol.
The body is bold and smooth.
The taste is vibrant with mouth coating dark malts, sweetness, and a mild lingering hop bitterness. But smooth. The 10%+ alcohol is well-integrated into this beer yet it brings on a definite light-headedness if drunk too quickly. This is a fine Imperial Stout and could easily be on my Top 10 favorite beers list.
