Notes/Commercial Description:
As dark as the legend of Blackbeerd himself, behold the Imperial Stout. Sweet malts battle roasted grain on the decks of yer tongue. Like a blast from a cannon, hop are followed by smoked malt. Hold on to yer booty, a dark stouts a brewin'.

Poured into a Fantome tulip on 9/15/11

Thanks to PDXHops

Bottled on 06 15 '10

Pours a dark cola brown that settles pretty close to black with some dark brown on the edges. One thumb of riddles-with-bubbles foam starts to drop immediately. Bubbly skim of retention. Scattered specks of lace at the top of the glass; it's more solid farther down.

I like the aroma on this one; straight-forward and enjoyable. Roasted and burnt chocolate and sugars; not overly sweet. Maybe a nip of molasses. There is an ashy sheen on the peripheries. Just a faint layer of tangy roast. The aromas mellows and rounds out over time.

Mmmm... The flavor profile is a layering together of all my favorite imperial stout characteristics. Lots of ashy notes - ashtray to the max! Burnt, bittersweet chocolate. Coffee roast is subtle; it is definitely a lesser component. Very dry throughout - sweetness is kept in the aroma where it belongs. As it gets warm there is a ghost note of dark fruit tanginess.

Full bodied but not heavy. Moderate viscosity with a reasonable amount of carbonation to temper it. Burnt, ashy notes linger on the finish.

Good grief this is a gnarly good beer; exactly what I like. I've had it on several occasions and enjoyed it every time.
