Poured from 22 oz. Bottle:
A: 2 1/2 fingers of head - carbonation is clear and doesn't dissipate quickly. This beer is dark as night, it is clearly an Imperial Stout. The head is even a nice dark brown color.
S: Great smell - espresso at the front with a slight hint of chocolate mixed in; faint alcohol in the mix. This smell is phenomenal - Great Divide mixed the odors perfectly.
T: Strong notes of coffee with hints of oak on finish. Phenomenal finish - smooth and creamy as it goes down; very drinkable for an Imperial. Alcohol is slightly noticeable, but doesn't hurt the overall flavor of the beer (it is stronger when it hits the palate and fades through the finish).
M: Malty, smooth, and creamy.
Great beer, the vanilla wasn't as noticeable as I expected; still overall very good.
D: Surprisingly drinkable for how heavy this beer is. One is quite enjoyable and having more doesn't seem unfathomable.
