look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Bottle on 12/13/10, Poured from 650ml into pint glass
A: Pours a thick black with some dark brown hues along the edges and finishes with a 1.5 finger brown head that slowly dissipates leaving a wonderful lace behind.
S: The espresso hits you in the nose, but you have to search for it a bit and there's also a nice maltyness to the background as well. Slight woody smell mixes in nicely with the coffee.
T: The bitter coffee beans come through right away and linger for the whole time. I enjoyed this very much because I was a little worried after the smell didn't knock me off my feet like I was expecting. Throughout I get some nice roasted malts and leaves a bitter, woody taste.
M: Big body with slight carbonation that goes down very smooth.
O: The coffee is big and I like it. I enjoyed the woodiness that comes through as well. Overall a great aged stout.

Pours a sludge-like deep, deep brown with a finger of dense, dark khaki head, like the crema on top of a shot of espresso. Impressive lacing for an imperial stout.
Smells of bitter chocolate, black licorice, roasted, borderline burnt barley and a touch of oak.
Tastes big and bold -- bitter chocolate, black coffee, oaky vanilla, milk chocolate. A little caramel sweetness. Smooth espresso on the finish. Nice lasting roasty bitterness.
Full mouthfeel that coats the entire palate and lingers. Creamy, with slightly prickly carbonation.
Overall, this is a roasty, roasty stout with just enough sweetness to balance it out. There doesn't seem to be a huge oak presence, but I guess it may have served to soften the edges and meld the bold flavors. A great barrel aged impy stout, though not the best.
