I've had this bottle for at least three years. Black label with a yellow eagle

A: poured into a snifter to a viscous black with a dark brown head that fades quickly and leaves no lacing
S: smells of bittersweet chocolate, roasted malts and a little coffee.
T: taste is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, a little bit of charred black malt, slight sweetness and a hint of oxidation. swallow is a little oxidized with some lingering notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate and dark roast coffee
M: full in the mouth with soft carbonation and a drying finish
O: an impressive beer. with some age on it it's a very smooth sipper that has some nicely blended edges. I'd like to try a fresher bottle to see how it compares.

Thanks to jmgrub for sharing this one at GRG1313's tasting.

2012 vintage.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and char aromas. Taste is much the same with cocoa and char flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast 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 pretty good beer that is fairly simple but tasty.

2012 vintage. Served in a snifter. This imperial stout pours a deep, dark brown, verging on pitch black. No light passes through the body of this beer. The head has a thick, cream-like texture to it, and looks about as dark as coffee and cream itself. There is lots of lacing going on, and the heads retention is very good.

The aroma is a mix of light fruitiness and a subtle nutty, roasted smell. The aroma is light in general, but that might be because of the temperature. Notes of walnut, fig, ripened pear, chocolate, and marshmallow. Nice complexity, but could use more volume.

A full bodied stout, viscous creamy mouthfeel, gentle (ever so soft) reminder of the alcohol content in the finish. Flavors of bitter hops in the finish and aftertaste, mixed with intense charred grain, coffee, fig pudding, raisins, caramel, and a certain acrid tang to the palette. Lots of flavor in this beer! Bold flavors.

Another great beer from Kuhnhenn! Very impressive that this beer has the body and flavor of a stout with much higher alcohol. Very rich, and well worth seeking out.
