22oz’s of Imperial Stout…it’s a beautiful thang. Pouring out into my goblet it leaves the bottle with viscous reluctance. The body is dead black, impenetrable, etc. thin brown head emerges and then recedes to a thin ring about the edge of the glass and a greasy cap. The nose is ripe with damp, dark berry esters, charred malt, coffee and bitter chocolate. Berries and bitter chocolate up front on my palate, all the great flavors of a good Imperial Stout are here espresso, charred malt. One thing that set this apart from other Imp Stouts to me though is the fresh green hop presence, almost immediately I started tasting citrus/pine hop flavors and they just became more prevalent into the finish. Bravo!, this may be the hoppiest stout I’ve had to date. The mouthfeel is a tad lacking, not too shabby anyway. That charred bitter/hoppy aftertaste is mind-blowing though, I have to get more of this!

Poured from a bottle into a Spiegelau stout glass.

A: Wonderful black with a rich brown-gold head. Nice lacing, very consistent liquid, thick and heavy. Gorgeous, wonderful, dark beer.

S: Thick, heavy massive malt body with huge coffee, chocolate and cinnamon on top.

T: Big roasted malt body, significant hop bite. Crisp coffee-like bitterness rises to the top after swallowing. A nice chocolate flavor on the aftertaste. Lots of deep earthy tones and spices. Very consistent, well bodied beer with a nice variety of flavors, but not complicated. Simple, but very good. Not very sweet.

M: Super smooth, some slight carbonation but a nice silky texture to the beer itself.

O: This is a very good example of an Imperial stout that makes no false claims. It's big, bold and huge on the roasted malt character. There is just enough bitterness and alcohol to clean up the malty body. It has notes of coffee and chocolate and is very well balanced, but lacks significant amounts of specialized textures and flavors that you might find in another imperial stout. It's very good, easy to drink and is consistent with its flavors throughout its temperature range. Solid A.

March 2011 bottle. Opened July 2014.

A - Solid, almost bowling ball black body. Creamy milk chocolate head has great retention and lace.

S - An excellent nose, sweet and chocolately. Malted milk balls, deep milk chocolate, chestnuts, touch of burt coffee.

T - Opens smooth, bold, and round with milk chocolate, dark roast coffee, and thick caramel. The center drops out a little, but features nice roast grain and molasses flavors. Really nice dry roast finish.

M - Smooth with a light, well balanced carbonation. Medium-full body with a great coating on the back end.

O - Really enjoyable, and arguably the best of the entire series.
