Pours tar black, can't find any other color in it and I like that. Has a nice thick tan head. Smell is of dark chocolate, coffee, toffee, and a hint of dark ripe fruits reminiscent of fig. Initial sip reveals a pretty complex brew that doesn't have as much of the distinct chocolate or coffee flavors that the nose suggests. A plum/prune fruitiness is up front and the long lingering aftertaste is where the bitter dark chocolate, burnt caramel, and coffee comes into play. Thick rich mouthfeel that feels pretty good leaves me wanting more. High quality RIS, my first clown shoes experience has been a good one.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Serving type: Bomber

Appearance: Dark brown, almost black with a tan, half-inch thick head.

Smell: Unique smell. Smell the malts as a roasted smell. Small hint of booze.

Taste: Complex taste with lots of flavors. Hints of coffee and caramel with a strong, but subtle chocolate taste. Nutty aftertaste.

Overall: Good tasting imperial stout. Lots of flavors for your tongue to unmask. Enjoyable if you enjoy dark, chocolately/coffee stouts.

22oz bottle dated 09/25/2012. Poured into a Cigar City snifter.

A: Pours a pitch black body, an abyss even when held to the light. A vigorous pour yields half an inch of mocha head, which dissipates quickly but maintains a nice ring and splotches on top as I drink the beer down.

S: Fudgy chocolate, roastiness, dark fruit, a little oxidization, a little alcohol.

T: A little hop bite even after two years, followed by roasted malt, some port sweetness, very dry, bitter chocolate, and more hops on the end. A little alcohol comes through, but is mostly just warming rather than an assertive flavor.

M: Pretty thick, but not at all syrupy, and starting to thin a little. Feels good, carries the flavors well, but doesn't stick around like the thickest/fudgiest stouts do.

O: This a nice, big RIS that is aging well, and will probably benefit from more time still. The alcohol is still pretty strong, and more dark fruit/port flavors are just beginning to emerge. I'll definitely pick up more to put away for awhile.
