From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on April 5, 2014.

This is a nice looking stout with its black pour and endless, lingering tan head that laces as it fades a bit. Never goes away. I like heady beers that remain heady.

Aroma of dark malts. No real chocolate or coffee but an otherwise sweet aromatic stout that smells very full and enticing.

The body is medium to full and quite smooth.

The taste has a wonderful toasted dark malt character with a token sweetness as well and a low to moderate hop finish. This beer is not hoped up but it is very well balanced and I wish I had another.

A - For an American stout (non RIS), it's impressive. Black body and espresso brown head. Great lacing and retention.

S - Light roasted malts, milk chocolate notes and faint licorice.

T - A little smokey, roasted malts, char and earthy.

M - Light to medium bodied with medium carbonation. Easily drinkable and a bit of heat.

O - Not bad, not bad at all.

A bomber bottled on 11/30/12. 15 months old when I drank this. Poured into a chalice.

A good imperial stout but too chocolaty and maybe a bit too sweet. Too much alcohol almost to the point of being solventy. Difficult to drink an entire bomber solo. 3.5

A – Poured a reddish brown with a half-finger dark tan head (both rocky and mousey). Opaque. Head dissipates quickly. Above average lacing. Definite alcohol legs. 4

S – Huge dominating dark chocolate followed by some whiskey and prune notes, some bonfire. 4.25

T – Roasty sweet, not burnt, chocolate, some faint alcohol in the finish, too sweet. 3.5

MF – Medium-heavy body, semi-slick, viscous, warming. 3.75

While the pour yields over three fingers of foam, it is almost all big, delicate bubbles which are able to sustain longer than you’d think, surface looks like the top of a milkshake, the glass sides are all but fully covered in lacing, as if spray painted. Completely black liquid, no sign of any other color, no way you can see any bubbles, solid. The nose slowly builds, not aiming to knock you out with one blow, milk chocolate toffee, vanilla layers itself like a thick cake, plum, black cherry fruit, hazelnuts and Brazil nuts, there’s a grainy bite and a sweet smokiness too, does kind of lurch as it dissolves but the alcohol isn’t vicious, just clumsy. Full-bodied, dense and making it slow to react. The plum, cherry fruit sweeter here, like a fruit cake. Not to downplay the milk chocolate, coconut, caramel, oatmeal notes. The carbonation starts to lend it creaminess then oddly stops. Very light citrus and flower accents, has a tea leaf to tobacco leaf smokiness. Its weakest point might be its lack of flow and thirst quenching capability, both of which seem within its reach. Enjoy how the sweetness trails off through the finish, making it fresher and potentially more food friendly.
