Served in a wedding snifter.

I remember thoroughly enjoying the normal Dark Hollow, so the addition of chocolate and coffee sounds like a great idea to me. This stuff pours a very dark black-brown topped by a half-finger of off-khaki foam. The nose comprises cocoa, coffee, an what seems like a vague hint of roasted malts way in the background. The taste sorta brings in more of the same, but the aforementioned notes are relegated to the very back of the bus whilst the front and middle seats are populated by sour-ish red grape, berry, and mild blood. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a fluid feel. Overall, this beer didn't do it for me. It smells great, but either there's an infection here or the beer just wasn't made all that well, 'cause it tastes pretty bad and comes off as a bit too thin for its own good.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. A few wisps on the surface. Chunky collar.

Smell - Raw coffee flavor. Very green and almost peppery. Chocolate. But coffee is dominant.

Taste - Extremely sharp coffee flavor. Same raw, green coffee. Still tastes like green peppers. I don't get much barrel out of this. Some chocolate though.

Mouthfeel - Medium high carbonation. Rough bitter coffee finish.

Overall - Eh. Very average and too much coffee. I have a regular version of this and I hope it doesn't have this offensive coffee flavor.

Portion of a 750ml bottle into a Hunahpu's snifter. From notes.

A: Pours a dark brown color. The head is a thin white-shaded collar.

S: Chocolaty, with a bit of coffee. I also notice slight caramel and roasted qualities.

T: At first, faint chocolate gives way to a vegetal, stale coffee profile. After a couple of sips, it balances out fairly well. The finish has a bit of 'saltiness' that I enjoy somewhat, too. Barrel influences are very subtle here.

M: Rather thin, and not really creamy, either. Still, the sweet/bitter balance is nice.

O: Ramp up the body, use better coffee; and we could really be talking about something kickass here. As it stands, it's a pretty good imperial stout with quite a few glaring flaws.

Batch #2

A- pours thick black, no head or lacing.

S- roast, dark fruits, and chocolate.

T- big dark chocolate, dark fruits and some roast.

M- medium body and low carbonation. Low carbonation makes it very drinkable.

O- goo RIS but the barrel aging is non existent for some reason.
