Remember remember the 5th of November! Guy Fawkes day, and election day.. seems like an appropriate time to open a big beer.

A: Barely a pop when the cork came out. Black with a slight amount of dark tan head.

S: Oh that is fantastic. The aroma is graceful, rich, and complex. Dark chocolate, vanilla, oak, and bourbon notes. The smell of freshly brewed espresso lingers faintly in the nose, while the chocolate and oak dominate.

T: Coffee and chocolate intermingle with the charred oak flavor from the barrel. The imperial stout comes through bringing with it hints of vanilla, and brown sugar, possibly the crust of a creme brulee. The finish is all coffee.

M: A little more thin than I would like, but still medium bodied. The carbonation is a tad low for me as well. There is a nice luxurious creamy feel to it, which I rather enjoy. The finish has a lingering bitterness that is reminiscent of the bite from dark chocolate.

O: Overall very tasty, and just what I was in the mood for. However in comparison to similar styles beers, this one doesn't break mold. While it is incredibly delicious, it just isn't quite world class...
