650ml bottle 10,0% Abv.
Served chilled and split between a wine glass and a snifter.
Bottled: 02/2012

Appearance: Vampire Slayer appears pitch black in the glass, with a back light revealing only a sliver of deep red along the edge of the glass. A rough pour yields a large darker tan coloured head that lasts fairly well and leaves a few small patches of lacing as it recedes.

Smell: Based on the description on the bottle I was expecting a smoke / roasted malt centered beer, however my first few sniffs indicate that this will not be the case. Rich dark chocolate and sweet creamy caramel dominate the nose with roasted malt, smoke and dark fruits present in smaller quantities.

Taste: The flavour isn't quite as sweet as the nose suggested, however it still leans towards the sweet chocolatey side as opposed to roasted and smokey. Notes include: Dark chocolate, sweet caramel, some brown sugar, roasted malt and a little smoke. The finish is lightly bitter and there is no trace of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full bodied with a medium-high level of fantastically smooth carbonation.

Overall: I haven't had Vampire slayer fresh, but this bottle was absolutely delicious so I can't imagine the age did anything but improve it! I will have to get a hold of a fresh bottle to see if this is indeed the case.

Dark, nearly black body with a lasting yet somewhat thin head. Plums, figs, and booze comprise the aroma; cocoa and some coffee. Taste closely mirrors the aroma. Body comes across medium-heavy, a little bubbly, somewhat sugary.

Overall, a pretty good imperial stout with most components playing nicely with each other yet with a slightly disjointed feel. Still, the beer is rich and flavorful, keeps the ABV reined in nicely, and generally fits the bill for the style.

A- Pitch black. Poured a nice, creamy 1 finger head. Awesome lacing, trailing, and legs.

S- Dark fruits: plum and dark cherry. Caramel, toffee, coffee, dark chocolate, booze and some smoke. Smell's like there's some oatmeal in there, too. Just a touch of band-aid, but in a good way.

T- Plums, cherry, smoke, and caramel, followed by decadent bittersweet dark chocolate, toffee, and a nice balance of booze. Nice smokey aftertaste.

M- Thickish, creamy, slightly syrupy. Taste melds with the mouthfeel beautifully! Drying and oily. Smokiness lingers a bit.

O- This was an awesome beer! I usually drink half of a bomber before sitting down to review, but this time, I only had about a cup left before it even crossed my mind. I loved how the mouthfeel complimented the flavors. I can't really explain how it did, but they went together wonderfully to me! I would drink this again in a heartbeat!
