look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

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.

look: 5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

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.

Appearance: dark brown, some good lacing, and a small head.

Smell: molasses, brown sugar, and a light vanilla.

Taste: light brown sugar, nice warm barley, and a sweet molasses finish.

Mouthfeel: chewy-yet-smooth medium body.

Overall:
This is a really nice stout. It is very pleasant. There is a slight sweetness in the finish.
