4.47/5 rDev +4.2%
look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
poured from a 750ml bottle into a tulip
A: Motor oil black, cocao color head about one inch thick, decent retention that comes back with a swirl and nice lacing.
S: Rich dark chocolate, whiskey, decadent roasted malt, slight alcohol, incredible nose
T: Fantastic, its like a chocolate bar covered in whiskey melting in you mouth, Its rich and simple yet amazingly complex with its overwhelming and robust flavor.
M: Has a fantastic mouthfeel but would benefit from some extra body and thickness. carbonation is soft but nice for the style
O: An amazing beer that needs to be tried by all who like stouts. I think its tasting amazing right now and im not sure it would benefit much, if any from aging and great divide has instantly shot to the top of my list with regards to quality beer. This is the best stout I have had in a long while and it beats out many other big names and should be had by all.

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!

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
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.
