A - Pours black. Has a very viscous appearance to it. Almost like it wants to cling to the inside of the bottle for a bit more, begging to live another day. A slight amount of brown head that fades relatively quickly. Lacing on the glass is nice. As I swirl it in my glass, it coats the glass walls like cough syrup would, leaving it's brown coat behind to slowly fall back into the mass.

S - All espresso. All day.

T - The obvious notes say hello from within. Espresso, chocolate, vanilla, and dark malt for me. Very tasty. As it warms the taste develops a bit and the different characters begin to blend nicely.

M - Smoooth. Absolutely one of the smoothest beers that I have had. Goes down smooth. Mouthfeel is full and abundant. Very little carbonation as expected.

O - A very good beer overall. Leaves the pleasant subtleties lingering in your mouth afterwards. The 9.5%ABV sneaks up on you a bit as it is very easy to drink. A great beer for a relaxing night.

Poured into a Hoppin Frog snifter. Bottled January 2012.

A- oil, thick, shiny, beautiful small brown head with a whipped cream consistency

S- chocolate and coffee explosion, earthy wood too, feels like your nose is turning into a cappuccino machine

T- milk and dark chocolate overwhelms, but with a Willy Wonka's chocolate factory sense of awe, coffee is also present obviously, but is not as strong as bottles less than 6 months of age, the mellowed out coffee and chocolate flavor is superb, hop presence as well, really balances the sweet chocolate flavors, toast and a little vanilla too

M- thick and sticky, i was licking my lips so much my friends were becoming annoyed

O- If you like chocolate or coffee, then this is a must-have. Great imperial stout. The added hop characteristics really balance out this beer. I didn't think I would enjoy this beer as much as I did with a bottle date over a year ago, but I thought it was still great. Having it aged a bit was just as good as having it fresh, but for different reasons.

Jan 13 bottle

Pours jet black with a small mocha head that quickly fades to a ring of bubbles around the brim of the glass. Smells of straight espresso. Taste is huge coffee upfront...like a shot of italian espresso that becomes a bitter dark chocolate with a bit of sharp oak. Mouthfeel is on the full side with just the right amount of carbonation. Overall a very good variation of a already stellar beer.
