12.09.08 bottling. Poured @ halftime of Super Bowl XLIII into my Stone IRS glass. Deep dark black in color, with rays of cola brown when held to the fireplace can. A nice 2 fingers of nougat colored head...frothy with some bright tiny bubbles in the middle. Really purty looking. A very inviting aroma of malted chocolate, raisins, cherries. Somewhat vinous smelling...very nice. Creamy flavor up front, somewhat thin at first. As it opens up, I get some nice dry chocolate nibs flavor. Not extremely full bodied. Bright hop flavor, somewhat subdued, but noticeable. Mouthfeel is somewhat delicate, with different flavor spectrums popping in. Finishes dry. Not a sledgehammer of an Imperial Stout...deceptive, unique. And pretty darned drinkable.
Cracked another bottle on 11.10.09
Sexy black with a nice thick airy head. Almond tan in appearance. Aroma of Whoppers. Prick of carbonation on the tongue...good and bitter cocoa nibs. Creamy then dry in the mouth...bitter dry.

Bottled Dec. 2011
To this day this is the only beer I ever got " from the back" at a bottle shop. Thanks to the guys at GBX. Aged over a year and a half for no particular reason.
a: Black body, medium sized yadda yadda yadda. It looks like a stout.
s: Really nice almost charred roasty cocoa dominates. Just a trace of dark fruit and no alcohol to be found anywhere.
t: Mirrors the smell basically. Lightly smoky, deeply roasty cocoa with a little bittersweet chocolate. No heat and not much else to find really.
m: A bit thin for a big stout, but that might be my fault for aging it.
o: Great stout, loved that smoky char quality. Thanks again GBX!
