Sampled at GABF on 9/18/2010. This Imperial Stout pours a deep black color from the tap. Medium sized tan foamy head. The aroma is chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, vanilla and woody with some alcohol. A full bodied Imperial Stout. A VERY BIG Imperial Stout. The malts are chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, some bourbon and some cherry. The hops are herbal. This beer has a big alcohol presence, I mean a whole lot of alcohol, the first sip and smell are dominated by the alcohol, after that the other flavors start coming through. There is a nice mix of malts, sweetness, vanilla and wood going on here, once you get past the big alcohol blast. This beer has an awesome potential for aging. It is very good now, but a couple or five years of bottle aging would make this beer even more amazing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
Serving type: on-tap

Thanks to my brewing buddy Steve for this one.
Pours up black with brown edges. Quickly fading brown head. Nose is chocolate malts, booze heat, raisins, black cherries, caramel. Tastes of all of the above, huge bourbon and oak, and then some. Thick bodied, smooth mellow carbo. Insane!

A- Pours lighter than expected, but still damn near black in color. Chocolately brown colors in the body near the edges with a very small head, that is more of a thin film on the top of the beer.
S- Big notes of sweet vanilla and bourbon right up front. The booze hits next on the nose with an oaky spiciness and plenty of heat. Dark malts, including coffee, chocolate, and burnt malts finish out the scent with a sweetness mixing in with oaky spiciness.
T- Starts off with a sweet bang of chocolate and vanilla flavors. Oak flavors and bourbon come next with some burn, but not as much as one would think. Creamy chocolate flavors come right after the burning sensation. Last flavor on the tongue at the end here is a blend of sweet and spicy chocolate and bourbon.
M- Thick, creamy, and boozey all the way through the drink, but surprisingly easy drinking and doesn't quite feel as strong as the label says. This will definitely put you under the table, but is so smooth and silky, it is almost a welcome feeling.
Overall, this is a great beer, but I'm not sure it is worth the price tag and the effort to procure. Still, a great beer that I would seek out and drink again.
