Served on-tap at The Sidecar in Philly.
Appearance is a dark brown tone with a thin tan head. Its` nose has vanilla, oak, roasted malts and prunes. With a sip, I taste bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, coffee, some hazelnut, very nice. The MF is rich and a bit creamy. All in all, a very nice imperial stout.
Serving type: on-tap

Reviewed from notes: 22oz bomber, cellared for a year
A: Pours pitch black with nearly two fingers of extremely tight mocha brown head. Pretty big espresso like bubbles on the top. Surprisingly good head retention. The head sticks to the sides of the glass as it dissipates.
S: Big chocolate, toffee/light molasses, a little coffee, touch of wood and vanilla, hint of dark fruits.
T: Milk chocolate and bitter dark chocolate with heavily roasted malts and a little char. The hops are still a little present with a floral quality and a little bitterness, but the wood and roast/char definitely overshadows it. Toffee and molasses through the middle leading to a slightly bitter finish (roasted/char and slightly bitter wood). Almost has a nougat quality.
M: Fairly full body (maybe a touch on the thiner side), smooth and creamy. There's just a touch of burn but otherwise the alcohol is very well hidden.
O: One of the best off-the-shelf stouts there is, I think this one ages beautifully. At a year old the hop bite is almost gone and the chocolate seems more intense and it's a little smoother overall. I'd love to see how this is after 2 or 3 years in the bottle. I'd love even more to see how this would be in a barrel with vanilla beans!

Poured from a 650ml bottle bottled on Oct 7, 2010, into a tulip glass.
A: Black with a 1 finger rocky deep caramel colored rocky head that is sticking to the side as it dissipates.
S: Intense roasted malts and chocolate hit the nose with hints of vanilla. Very strong smell here.
T: Very intense flavor here, oak flavors into an intense roasty dark chocolate flavor with vanilla hints throughout. Tastes very much so like an espresso at some points, I feel as if I'm eating chocolate covered espresso beans.
M: Thick with little to no carbonation on the tongue.
O: This is very intense and definitely a sipper. The flavors are very strong even though it was bottled over a year ago and this definitely would make for an excellent desert beer.
