---from bomber to wine glass---

Appearance
Absolutely black with a thin khaki colored cap, very little lacing.

Smell
Dark roasted malt, cocoa powder, not much else here.

Taste
Sweet roasted malt, hints of coffee and bitter dark chocolate.

Mouth-feel
Astringent, medicinal tang. Over carbonated. Medium body with a dry whiskey like finish.

Overall
Weak at the nose. Minimal flavor. Bad mouthfeel. One glass and the rest down the drain. I've had better (most of em from Lagunitas)

Bottled May 30th 2013.

Poured from the 22 oz. bottle into a Samuel Smith English nonick pint.

a: Black with peripheral clear ruby highlights at the bottom when held to light. Three inch tall tan head dissipated to even surface foam and extensive patterned lacing.

s: Dark malt, later hints of dirty gym socks, but not enough to be bothersome.

t; Smoky dark malt with hops bitterness for balance. Less hop bitterness than some but definitely there. The almost 10% ABV is well concealed except for a little throat burn on the way down..

m: Light to moderate, seems heavier later. Very smooth.

o: A very pleasant easy drinking imperial stout. At its ABV level that is quite an accomplishment.
