This stuff is black as night! wow! poured into a goblet this stout has a small head with a faint aroma. PT5th truly hides the ABV with an awesome mouth feel and super high drinkability. This is the first Dark Horse beer I have tried and I am truly impressed. The taste is legendary to me for the style. I would buy this any time I could and will trade for it again. I can only imagine how good the BA version is.
Bottom Line: Incredible stout worth seeking out!

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Appears a dark brown, nearly black, with one finger of tan head. The head dissipates fairly quickly, but leaves a ring around the glass, and has nice lacing.
The nose is full of deep roastiness and wonderful dark and milk chocolates. Not overwhelmingly powerful, but the notes are there (just too weak for me). The taste is again full of chocolate, some dark fruits, smoke and a wonderfully roasted malt finish. This is just what I'm looking for in a stout: not something that is overwhelming in one direction or another, but is wonderfully balanced in all aspects. The alcohol is very well hidden, and everything works together very well.
The mouthfeel is medium to heavy bodied, with low carbonation, and a finish that isn't overly sticky. Overall, this is a very good imperial stout, with wonderfully complex and subtle flavors. This is also something that I can drink over and over again, not something that is so overwhelming that you're knocked out after one. Really hope I can try the barrel aged version at some point!
