Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours a very dark brown, appearing black in the glass, with a fine two finger light brown head with great retention and lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, chocolate, hints of nuts, vanilla, ethanol. Flavor is mellow, initially masked by enjoyment of a a superb, satiny body. Flavor develops quickly with dark malt, milk chocolate, nuts, oak with a mild rye sourness. Fabulous thick body. Finishes with toasted malt, a bit of a hop kick and mild booziness. Warming. Although it has a bit of booziness, the flavors are well integrated and work well together and the 13% was well covered.. A stout with a bit of hype in the presentation that actually lives up to it. I liked this a lot; the mouthfeel is to die for. The flavors are somewhat laid back, so I'm skeptical about the recommendation to age this, but at this ABV, I'm sure going to lay away a few to see what happens.

A-Big, black and viscous. Black as night with a sturdy, lingering head of tight bubbles. The head is fairly stingy with its lacing.

S-The nose is shockingly soft. The booze, oak, nuts, rye and base elements are pretty mellow. As I really start to sniff, all those wacky aforementioned add-ins pipe up slightly. This should be much more expressive.

T-The flavor isn't super aggressive again but it just hits the tongue with passion. The flavors are slow and deep as opposed to jumpy and energetic. The oak and pecans do present themselves nicely. The base flavors of gooey chocolate and dark coffee are very fleshed out as well. I do get a tickle of rye too. So, although I wasn't impressed by the smell, the flavor delivers is a subtly complex manner.

M-The feel is world class. Thick, full and nearly chewy. Booze heats up the back of the tongue but its very sneaky and quite hedonistic.

O/D-Has its high points. This is one of those beers that grows on you sip by sip. I thought the nose was boring and the first sip was slightly better. By the end of the bomber I really ended up enjoying it. Once I immersed myself in the flavors I found many of this brew's intricacies.

On tap at 16 tons cafe the other day.

The beer pours a blackish brown color with very good head retention and considerable lacing. The nose is every bit as attractive, as I pick up considerable coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, some light rye and licorice, and a hint of underlying wine and leather. The flavor profile replicated the nose pretty closely in this excellent beer, with the chocolate and port wine flavors seeming to dominate. So the beer is on the sweet side, but there seemed to be enough hoppy bitterness to dry the beer out fairly well on the finish. Mouthfeel was pretty full, and the beer was very soft and smooth on the palate. The finish was also quite long in this well crafted beer, and I thought the alcohol was very well integrated into the flavor profile. You certainly get a sense of the 13% abv., but the beer is not at all heavy or hot on the finish.

I really felt as if there was a lot going on with the flavor profile in this beer, and I really enjoyed it. Have had many Stone impy stouts over the years, but this has to be right up there with the best of them. Very nice...
