Great head...1/4 inch of brown foam; dark chocolate in color; good cocoa, coffee and even vanilla hints in the nose; very well-balanced; love the espresso overtones; after trying the Belgian Yeti in a bottle the night before, this one kind of blows it away; oak and subtle hop flavors on the back of the tongue.

I had this beer during the power outage. I new the heavier beers like this one would hold up really well at room temperature (or close to it). My review is taken from notes.

I poured this beer into a snifter glass, and it is really black. I can't even see through it with my headlamp. You gotta love the dark beer on a very dark night.

This beer smells amazing. You get a ton of coffee. I love the espresso presence. The oak even comes out in the background. There is lots of roast.

The taste is almost as good as the smell. You continue to get lots of roast coffee. I like the chocolate in the background.

This is really a delicious beer.

Pours jet black, nut brown fluffy head over an inch, slow dissipation.

Nose is rich chocolate, coffee, caramel, oats and oak.

Tastes of light chocolate, caramel, and potent flavorful espresso coffee. The coffee is prominent but not acidic and comes across smoothly.

Full, thick body with creamy tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Fantastic, one of the best stouts I can think of. Hides its strength well, goes down smooth, a sipper that you have to fight gulping, which is rare in a stout. Would have this again and again and I hope to try the other variations soon.

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.
