Excellent stout that is incredibly drinkable, balanced and complex.

Pours off-black with a light tan head, a bit of lacing.

Smell is oaky vanilla, coffee, cocoa and brandy.

Taste is nice, balanced light mouthfeel with an equal mix of dark malts, mocha and a little brandy or bourbon - finishes just off bitter.

Overall a terrific Imperial stout that is less sweet and sticky than most - goes down smooth.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

16 oz. can poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black with a big khaki head. Medium collar. A few wisps.

Smell - I guess it's got a little vanilla. Oak is strong. Chocolate.

Taste - Coffee. Chocolate. Nutty malts. A little vanilla. Strong oak in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Overcarbonated, even after sitting open for a while. Not too heavy.

Overall - I've really enjoyed Marshall Wharf beers in the past. I had really high expectations for this. Good, but didn't really live up to it.

Can from early December poured cold into a snifter
A: jet black with a vigorous pour leaving big creamy mocha head w coating dark lace
S: toasted nuts, coffee grinds, sweet chocolate
T: coffee upfront, bittersweet chocolate leads into a roasty blend of complex depth. Swings a bit toward the sweet side for me could use a bit of age
M: creamy, bit of chew, thick and almost feels like chocolate bar melting in mouth

4.51/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a pitch black color with 2+ fingers of sticky tan head that lasts forever. Takes about 10 minutes before it gets down to a fingers worth of cap that leaves sticky lacing down the glass

S: Roasted malts, vanilla, caramel, oak, molasses, dark and milk chocolate, coffee, and a hint of anise all come through. Extremely complex

T: Follows the nose. Very layered and extremely complex. Starts off with the roasted malts, caramel, and molasses. Oak, vanilla, coffee, and dark chocolate then come through along with a touch of alcohol. Finishes with a bit of bitterness and more roastiness

M: Full bodied with moderate carbonation. Almost motor oil-like, but the carbonation cuts the thickness

O: Quite pricey at almost $6 for a single can (or $20 for a 4-pack), but I'll be damned if this isn't one of the most complex RISs I've ever had. Not sure how it compares to on-tap at the restaurant, but I'm extremely glad that they canned it, even if it's only this once. If you can find it, it's worth a purchase
