A: Pours a near opaque black color. A two finger tan head quickly forms, but recedes just as quickly. Par for the coarse with the alcohol level and style.
S: Barrel aroma is strong and up front. A big sweetness in the nose, with chocolate, roasted malts, and roasted nuts. While a huge and boarding on over barring nose, still enjoyable.
T: Like the nose, this boarders on over barring but still fairly enjoyable. A huge barrel character with an equally large sweetness. Some roast, and coffee with an enjoyable nutty flavor. All help to try and balance the huge aspect of the beer.
M/D: Low carbonation, viscous, and just huge. Alcohol is certainly apparent, but almost kept in check. I can at least enjoy a few ounces.

For this massive barrel aged imperial stout, this is somewhat enjoyable. Though, again, I can find plenty of the same style I enjoy much more. That are much easier to get, and in many cases locally made. Interesting to try, but not one of my favorites on the style.

Bottle to Bruery Tulip
750ml- Grey Wax

2013 Release

App- This was about the same as BT. Just thick, dark and viscous in the glass. A small amount of brown bubbles formed and was gone rather quickly.

Smell- When I first had a BT, I thought it was more port with a big sweetness, phenol alcohols and fruits. This was like that but the chocolate and hazelnut dominated the flavors. When I put my nose in the glass, I felt I was smelling a hazelnut chocolate milk.

Taste- I felt it this was actually better than BT and MW. Its a good stout due to the base beer. This highlighted the chocolate and hazelnut way more than MW and coffee. This had more flavor and was creamier and layered.

Mouth- Thick and viscous. A low carbonation level and was very creamy just like BT. The hazelnut dominates the residual flavors along with the chocolate.

Drink- It was a good beer. It was expected. I appreciate when someone says its a hazelnut beer, it should taste like hazelnuts. This was that and was a huge beer.
