look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

A - Dark, dark brown, as close to black as possible without being black. Solid tan head that started about 2 fingers high, but dissipating quickly to almost no head at all.

S - Coffee, raisins, whiskey, dark chocolate, licorice, vanilla, and campfire (in the best way possible).

T - Roasty, smokey malt and strong alcohol presence hits at first. Suddenly, sweet maltiness, dark chocolate, roasted espresso beans. Bitter and sweet on the back end. Quite sweet on the lips as well.

M - Thick, syrupy with light carbonation. Alcohol and sweet aftertaste lingers in your mouth.

O - Very good. I would buy again when in the mood for a strong imperial stout. That sais, I think it would be a good idea to sit on this one for a while. I have another one in the cellar that I will pop open sometime in the future. I'm thinking this one will probably age well.

A - Pretty close to black, not much head, some spotty lace. Tan small ring.

S - Nice. Cocoa. Coffee. Baked goods along the lines of brownies and cc cookies.

T - Taste pretty much emulates smell.

M - Medium to heavy, good carb, pretty good balance.

O - Was hoping for a bit more, but it's pretty good.

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

a: pitch black, slick looking. 2.5 finger solid beige head

s: roasted toasted malts, dark chocolate, some sweet dark fruit - fig, raisin, plum. dark toffee and sweet malt.

t: roasty toasty malt hit you right away. they fade into the sweet malt, fig, dark chocolate, and alcohol. there is a bitterness on the backend that comes from the toasted malts. the alcohol is pretty noticeable - i think this may need some time to cool off

m: heavy, almost syrup-like that coats your mouth.

o: i think this needs some time to let the alcohol mellow. its still an easy drinker, but the alcohol could be a little better harmonized. its not a bad imperial stout, but there are better ones out there

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a mini snifter.

A: Very dark brown. Pours a half finger, bubbly, brown-white head. Dissipates quickly leaving a pocket of bubbles and a ring. Spotty lacing.

S: Syrupy malt, dark chocolate, coffee, oak, black licorice, and an indistinct floral sweetness.

T: Bitter and pungent roasted coffee malt. Licorice is prominent, gin or vodka also. Pecan shell.

M: Thick and hearty. The liquor infiltrates the nasal cavity and kind of lingers around. Bitter and dry finish.

D: Sip and savor. The liquor feel will dictate it.

Atmosphere is pretty good. Fair head and minute lacing. Nose is complex combination of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, licorice and something floral...I think. Pungent malt, roasted coffee, and a harsh liquor character. Overall, this is a good quaff.
