Served in a Libby stout/porter craft beer glass. Bottled on March 19, 2012.
Appearance: Pitch black, dark tan head which died down to a thin skin across the top. Big sheets of lacing.
Smell: Deep rich cocoa/bittersweet chocolate with just some barest hints of wood in there. With a swirl some licorice and vanilla notes come out as well. Like inhaling a freshly unwrapped bittersweet chocolate bar.
Taste: Bittersweet chocolate, hints of espresso coffee, vanilla/oak notes towards the end. I don't taste the cayenne pepper but I do notice its heat at the end of the sip. Like drinking a decadently rich chocolate mousse. Desert in a glass.
Mouthfeel: Very thick and creamy. Barest hint of carbonation.
Overall / Drinkability: Fantastic with a meal (port and black been enchiladas, peanut butter brownies) but is it's own experience as well. Rich, decadent, amazing. Alcohol is well hidden, but I did notice it so one tall glass was enough. A definite sipping beer and one worth savoring. Probably one of the best American Imperial Stouts I've had and just south of perfection.

A. Dark, dark brown, nearly black. An aggressive pour yielded a small amber head that retreats to a minimal film. No laces.
S. Chocolate, coffee, neutral oak, dark roasted malts all at noticeable levels. Hints of vanilla. Mild aroma.
T. The taste follows the nose consistently. A noticeable bitterness, not at all sweet. Major notes of coffee, dark malts, neutral oak, and some hops. No booze. A moderately bitter ale.
M. Moderately smooth, moderate carbonation, medium body.
O. Very balanced and consistent. Excellent. Highly recommended.
