2011 Vintage - 750 ML - Bottle #789
Poured this into a brandy snifter.
Appearance: Pours a thick, dark brown. Like syrup, it sticks to the glass. A limited amount of carbonation.
Smell: Smells of raisins and dark chocolate. A bit of fresh whiskey notes can also be had. I don't get the vanilla.
Taste: It tastes of fresh raisins and has a bit of whiskey bite to it, which is a result of the barrel aging. The chocolate flavors come through towards the end of each sip. It needs some time to mellow out in the bottle, but is still a great beer.
Mouth: A medium bodied stout. A slight whiskey burn upfront and lasting chocolate silkiness at the end.
Overall: Great beer and I can't wait to see where cellaring takes this beer in a year or two. I'll be interested in tasting this down the road with the Stranahan's barrels no longer being used.

Served on-tap in an 8 oz goblet. Not much head, but it has an incredibly deep dark brown-black color that no light can penetrate. Nice mild to moderate lacing. The aroma is out of this world, it reach up through your sinuses and grabs your brain by the hippocampus--coffee, molasses, a bit of plums. The flavor is deep, dark, and complex--coffee, chocolate, molasses, grapefruit, and a smokey sweetness that hovers on your palate. Mouthfeel is very thick and chewy, amazing. This is an outstanding imperial stout. My previous gold standard was Old Rasputin, but this one, though different, is just as magnificent!

On tap @ Churchill's "Night of the Yeti" during SDBW. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours black with few bubbles around the rim and no lace.
N: Sweetish whiskey booze is evident. Like a chocolate brownie soaked in whiskey.
T: Mildly sweet, vanilla present with some oaky notes and dark chocolate, grainy/malty.
M: Full body and light carbonation. Slick and oily roasted finish.
O: Aside from the low carbonation, this was very enjoyable.
Serving type: on-tap
