2.17/5  rDev -46.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Thanks to by trading buddy, hoppymeal, for knocking off this long-time want of mine. The bottle states it's from December 2009.

Typical dark color pour of a stout only with minimal head and short retention. A thin ring does form around the glass and maintains itself for some time.

As soon as I cracked the cap I got a whiff of strong coffee notes, highly roasted but sweet and floral. Once I get all the beer in the glass I can pick up a nice mixture of vanilla, roasted malts, powdered sugar, lactose, condensed milk, sweet hazelnuts, and LOTS of powdered chocolate and coco. Quite nice overall, very sweet but it doesn't feel cloying just yet, there is a decent amount of roasted malts to balance out the sweetness. The coffee aroma comes across more of a French vanilla roast, almost as if I'm putting a handful of beans up to my nose.

Ugh, dammit...from the moment it touched my lips there is a very acidic sensation and sour cherry finish. I don't think this is how it's supposed to taste. The body is a tad too thin for an imperial stout. The aftertaste is quite nice with the French roast flavor, vanilla, vanilla wafers, brown sugar, and roasted and chocolate malts. Nope, definitely not good. A tad fizzy, very thin and sour to boot. Sigh.
