Had this on 2013-06-29 in Lititz, PA. Special thanks to matador677.
A - Fantastic. Completely opaque black with a rich dark brown, 1-finger head that is surprisingly lively.
S - Roasted grain, dark chocolate, cherry, plum
T - Dark roasted grain, plum, tart grape skins, dark chocolate, char, chalk, vanilla and some toffee/molasses sweetness. Subtle but certainly-present chili and cinnamon flavors. It finishes nicely tart and rich with a hint of coffee, bold dark chocolate and pepper-cinnamon.
M - Medium-thick body and light-medium carbonation. Smooth, creamy, lucious.
O - An explosion of flavor.

Pours pitch black, bubbling up a great one finger dark brown head, lingers for a while until it turns to a thick sticky lacing.
Huge cocoa in the smell, lots of cinnamon and vanilla, milky and dark chocolate, fig, raisin, veggie chilli pepper, lower coffee notes, faint wood. The smell is incredible, with just a small hint of booze.
Roasty robust taste, huge with dark chocolate, riddled with dry plums and figs, spicy with a lot of woody cinnamon, rich vanilla, even faint licorice. Mellows down and gets a bit sweeter, with sticky molasses and toffee, only to be balanced perfectly in the end with some roasted coffee, dark malts and faint smoked woodiness. The chillies bring a nice warm prickle in the back of the throat, just enough so you know they're there. Taste really brings up all that's written on the label, amplified, rich and perfectly balanced.
Thick body, very smooth, with a very tiny bit of booze present, nowhere near disturbing. Full complex aftertaste, extra roasty.
A huge imperial stout, unique, worth any effort and future budget-hole to get again.
