Solid stout. 2103 vintage. Look is awesome, very little head in this beer. Fantastic flavor.

Big, black and thick.

The viscosity is almost like some used motor oil. A small burnt sugar lacing stays with you for a couple of minutes, then dissipates leaving nothing creamy behind.

Smells of nice burnt malts. Coffee, caramel a hint of vanilla somewhere in the background are there.

The taste is amazing. Full body, heavy. Really nice malt forward feel. Sweet and complex. Good amount of alcohol. It's there just to let you know that you are going to feel good later on. Hops are present in the aftertaste.

Overall it's a nice experience. More like peace then war.

Poured from fridge temp to snifter. Beautiful color. You can tell it's a double imperial stout immediately.

Smell - huge notes of chocolate and molasses. A really nice sweetness comes through.

Taste - Wow - this is really nice. The smoke really comes through here. Very toasty. A little bitter, which would definitely go away with some age. Overall very nice. Great offering from Hoppin' Frog.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

22oz bottle poured into a snifter
A: Pitch black with a one-finger brown head that slowly settles
S: Lots of cocoa, coffee, burnt malt, molasses,
T: Matches the aromas but with a stronger burnt component. Very dark/bitter. If you don't mind the bitterness this is great but the bitterness is a touch overpowering
M: Full-bodied, only a slight hint of alcohol but very bitter
O: This is a very good beer though for me the bitterness is a bit overwhelming. If the bitter notes were toned down a bit it would likely be 4.5s across the board
