22oz bomber: This one pours an inky, opaque dark brown color. There was a very small brown head on it that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. The nose is good. Touch of smoke, just a hint of alcohol. Chocolate, dark fruits, hint of spruce: there is a lot going on in there. The taste is good. A bit of a sweetness to it. Some espresso, chocolate, spruce, dark fruits and some bitterness/dryness in the finish. This is really good!

Poured a blackish body with one finger tan head and slight lacing around glass. Aroma is mostly roasted malts with some chocolate and a touch of coffee mixed in. Smooth, slightly sweet due to chocolate malts, easy to drink with decent balance, a little bit of caramel and vanilla as well. Not the most active stout but balanced with no overpowering malts and the booziness is kept to a minimum.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a poco grande glass. Bottled on 06/04/2013.
A- Dark black body with a 2 finger foamy head. No light shines through when held up to the light.
S-Licorice, dark fruits, char, roasted dark malts, bittersweet chocolate.
T/M-Roast, chocolates, licorice, espresso, prune juice. Light carbonation. Alcohol is hidden really, only shows up once it warms up with a slight burn in the back of the throat.
O-A decent imperial stout that was much better than I expected. Even though the licorice is dominant to me I still really enjoyed this and plan on buying another bottle to cellar for a year or 2 to see how it may mature.

Appearance: poured a really dark amber (looks black) into a glass (not sure of the name) got a nice 2" foamy head, light brown in color. Head settles into a nice ring with a light lace in the middle. At this point I unexplicably have a boner.
Smell: definately Kona coffee with a boozy essence, with hints of vanilla. I took several good whiffs to pick up the scent but it wasnt very aromatic.
Taste: surprisingly sweet almost like licorice very boozy. As it warms up the chocolate and.coffee flavor comes out with a bit of vanilla. Definately taste better warm.
Mouthfeel: syrupy full mouth feel with warm finish
Overall: good stout must be the holy water that adds the kick to it

In review is a 2012 vintage.
A - Pours dark, dark black with a thin toffee colored lacing ring and very thick and viscous looking when the glass is swirled, nice legs.
S - Dark roast aroma with slight booziness, vanilla, some sweet chocolate molasses, and cream.
T - Taste is predominantly dark chocolate molasses, roast, dark fruit, with some alcohol effervescence.
M - Incredibly thick and slippery with a full body, a little syrupy..
O - After sitting for a year and a half it's not bad, next time 'will open when younger.
