A - Pours a motor oil black with a huge dark brown active head that fades slowly.

S - Malt, a touch of chocolate, overall pretty mild.

T - Creamy milk chocolate and vanilla. So good!

D - Tons of carbonation with a heavy body. Silky smooth.

O - Nose is subtle, but the taste is sublime. Great beer!

Bottle provided by HenrikO as an extra (!) in our most recent trade. Bottle 112 out of 450, from the 2013 release.

Appearance is a very very dark brown. Nice, but not the inky black I like to see in the stout world. The head is the color of lightly creamed coffee, very nice.

Aroma is nice dark fruits, some char and roast, coffee, slight booze.

Taste exceeds the aroma. Just a very well executed traditional imperial stout. Nice low levels of roast. Very nice dark fruits and slight booze. Hops are very background, if noticeable at all.

Mouthfeel is on point. Filling, coating. Very well done stout.

Overall: This is the stout that KtG wanted to be. Well done. I just stumbled into this bottle, thanks to a great trading partner. Wish it wasn't so limited, as I would love some more for the cellar, and fridge. Delicious.

750 ml bottle served in a Southampton oversized snifter. Big thanks to cosmicevan for throwing the guy my way. Bottle #281/450, 2013 vintage.

A: Pours a dark black color with a dark mocha head forming on the pour. Very nice retention as it recedes to a thick head and collar. Sticky lace left down the glass.

S: Nice roasted malts, some char and some dark fruit. Creamy, bready malts with some light cocoa and coffee bean notes as well. Some sweet molasses on the back end as well.

T: Nice roasted malts with a slight hint of char. Coffee grounds with some dark chocolate. Some sweet boozy notes mixes with some molasses and a little bit of dried bitterness on the finish.

M: Medium to heavy bodied with a nice drinkability. Medium carbonation trending towards the lower end of the spectrum. Smooth finish.

O: A really nice stout. Lots of char and chocolate with a nice sweetness form the alcohol to cut it. Not the most hidden booze for ~10%, but it doesn't detract from the overall drinkability of the beer.
