Pour is black with a small amount of milky brown head. Nose has a light roast, hints of licorice and tobacco, and fruity esters. Taste has a bit more malt, light roast, some rich milk chocolate, a bit of sweet fruitiness in back. The Belgian yeast doesn't really make a huge impact. May add some fruitier notes not typically in an imperial stout. It isn't a sugary malt or a dark berry. Seems well attenuated, clean, full bodied, and moderate carbonation.

Bottled June 17, 2011, reviewed May 14, 2014

Poured from a into a Boddingtons pint glass and a stemless wine glass. Pitch black in color, extremely opaque. Very thin tan with little retention. Probably due to it's age.

Smell is dark chocolate, cacao, booze and molasses

Taste is coffee up front, booze, caramel, belgian yeast, and then chocolate in the aftertaste. Kind of like someone spilled coffee over chocolate covered banana bread.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and syrupy at the end

Overall, extremely well done. Hides the ABV extremely well, and is nicely balanced.
