2013 edition, 22 oz bottle, poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds that collected atop the beer.

Aroma: Massive aromas of roasted malt, imparting notes of freshly baked dark bread, dark chocolate and a ton of hops.

Taste: Wow!! Strong, big, bold flavors of roasted malt up front, imparting notes of coffee, dark chocolate, caramel-like sweetness and beautifully balanced with some hoppy bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Chewy and extremely smooth as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 9.5%, there is a very pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Wow, what another damn excellent imperial stout! Big, bold flavors all wrapped up in a very creamy beer. Delicious!

Excellent stout. Light chocolate and malt aroma. Creamy, full body. Cocoa, chocolate, roasty malt, light sweetness. Bitterness in the finish.

Been wanting to try for a while and finally got the chance.

A - Pours a thick very dark brown and settles into a deep black with a plentiful brown colored head with strong lacing.

S - Rich roasty aroma with chocolate and coffee secondary. Sweeter maltiness than many RIS's which I really like but not as powerful as some that I've experienced.

T - Very similar to the smell; has the roastiness from the smell first but closely accompanied by the rich chocolate, malt, and coffee tones. It is full flavored with a good bitterness that helps balance the sweetness. Not as big as some but plenty of flavor to keep sipping away on this one.

M - Big mouth-feel. High carbonation. This one just erupted with carbonation as I poured not expecting such vigor from the solution. I like the carbonation because even though it is a pretty viscous beer the carbonation and bitterness do a good job of tricking your mind into thinking that it is lighter. This beer finishes smooth and balanced.

Overall, this is a very good imperial stout. This is an above average RIS just because I like the feel of it but I still prefer Ten Fidy with its sheer power. I would definitely recommend this beer and I would suggest getting the bomber instead of the 12oz because you will want more than 12oz of this at a time!

Outstanding appearance, beautiful dark color, nice full brown head that does not dissipate quickly. The lacing is awesome, grabs the glass and does not let go. Exactly what you want a stout to look like. You pick up the roast, there is a chocolate and some coffee. You do not get the coffee and the roast in the taste but there is limited sweet malt and a touch of lingering bitter, but by no means to much. Maybe, maybe, slightly out of balance but that is picking. Age it and I bet that it is perfect. Feel is a little light for a stout, I prefer them to be a little more chewy. Overall this is an outstanding beer that I would gladly have any day.
