Pours a pitch dark brown with thin dense medium brown head, sheet of delicate lace trails the liquid by an inch. Smell: dark chocolate, raisin, ripe plum; roasty and caramel with a dose of cigar box. Taste: smoke and roast are big upfront, then dark chocolate and dark fruit get overwhelmed by cedar and evergreen. Full bodied, cedar heavy finish. Pretty enjoyable.

Thanks to GRG1313 for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, char, smoke, and wood aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa, char, and smoke flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast and smoke bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a smoke presence that seems a bit more refined in the taste.

750 ml bottle into snifter, bottled on 11/21/2013. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, smoke, cedar, tobacco, light char/molasses, light leather, light raisin/plum, and roast/smoke earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, smoke, cedar, and light fruity yeast notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, roasted malt, coffee, smoke, cedar, light char, tobacco, light char/molasses, light leather, light raisin/plum, and roast/smoke earthiness. Light roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, roast, coffee, smoke, cedar, tobacco, light char/molasses, light raisin, light leather, and roast/smoke earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt, cedar, smoke, and light fruity ester flavors; with a good roasted malt bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very creamy and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent smoked imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, smoke, cedar, and light fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
