Bottled in 2009. Pours dark as hell and thick as hell. Surprisingly good amount of foam for a three year old imperial stout. The head is beautiful - dark tan leather, huge and foamy. The nose is full of intense bouts of chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts. Upon taking a sip, the bittersweet cocoa hits you right away. A slight punch of bitterness on the back of the tongue with a nice sweetness that takes it over halfway through. Warmth brings out the deep coffee flavor in the brew, which is very dominant on the palate once it's picked up. Throughout the brew, you're battling back and forth between chocolate and coffee, trying to decide which one is more prominent. Sometimes you get a sip that reminds you of a dark roasted Columbian coffee, other times you'd swear you were drinking a liquid Godiva bar. Some sweetness at the end, which almost is reminiscent of figs or anise - very, very faint, however. The body is extremely rich, creamy, and chewy with a low level of carbonation.

This stout is simply delicious. It has two main flavors which battle for your tastebuds throughout the whole experience - coffee and chocolate - and it's quite amazing. Very rich and definitely something you'll want to sip, however one of the best stouts I've had.
