Thanks, libbey!

Black throughout and relatively thick in body. Very small dark brown crown atop of tight, small bubbles. Leaves the glass oily and just spotted with stick on the way down. Appropriately thick and menacing in appearance. Pretty and appropriate.

A sweet imperial stout, with notes of molasses, burnt brown sugar, and roast leading the way. There's a bit of a maple sweetness, and some char and ash notes as well, especially as the beer warms.

The flavor too is very sweet, which can be expected with an imperial stout of this magnificent heft. There's notes of brown sugar and molasses, along with a very mild chocolate, along with strong notes of ash and char, unfortunately. The alcohol is hidden extremely well for the noted ABV, but the char/ashtray notes are distracting and detract from the other flavors of the beer.

Medium in body, though I expected a fuller, thicker stout. Low carbonation.

Incredibly grateful that I got to try it, but this imperial stout wasn't one of my favorites.

Thanks to Jay for sending this my way. Poured from a 32oz growler.

Visually, this beer looks like any other stout.

The aroma is about average, some roast, some chocolate, a bit of booze.

Taste isn't far off from the nose. Slightly bitter cocoa powder is the predominant flavor. A little roast, a very tiny amount of oakiness, and not much else. The ABV is well hidden.

Mouthfeel is solid. A bit of cocoa dustiness gives this beer a unique aspect.

Overall, a good beer. However, it is not a top-tier stout. There are too many regularly available stouts in my area that I would choose over this any day of the week for me to want to trade for this again.

Appearance- Was received with about a finger's worth of head. The head is a very dark beige with hint of ochre. It has pretty much no retention and no real lacing. The body is an opaque dark chocolate black. You can tell from the appearance alone that is not a beer to be trifled with.

Nose- A little subtle for an Imperial stout but still nice and complex. Espresso with more generic, coffee, roasted malt notes. Some chocolate in the background. After some swirling, I get some notes of toast and burnt caramel. Surprisingly, no alcohol. A little bit of cream as well.

Taste- Reflective of the nose- heavy on the espresso with other roasted notes. Noticeable booze and evident but seemingly contained oak. Bitter, dark chocolate notes as well. Alcohol is pretty minimal and so is the oak. This is a good thing. While this is well balanced and well rounded, I would like a little more complexity even at the cost of minor messiness. Pretty much average in regard to the Imperials I've had. This still makes it a solid beer. You have to give them props for hiding 14% so well. Some notes of oatmeal and a bit of smoke. Almost a rusted quality that actually works.

Mouthfeel- Medium to heavy bodied. Perhaps a little too much carbonation. A little gritty, a little chewy.

Drinakbility- Perhaps it's a good thing that is a little average for an Imperial. A delicious and fairly cheap 14% beer could be dangerous. 3.75 is not a bad price at all for a 250 mL pour.

Overall- Above average to solid beer. Definitely worth a try for stout lovers but if you've had the premium ones, you probably won't be impressed.

Thanks, Dyan!

Black, as you'd expect. Alcohol is well hidden, especially for the ABV. Big roasted and dark chocolate notes with anise and molasses. A bit of grape and plum. Touch of brown sugar. Bittersweet dark chocolate flavor with roast and molasses. Aggressive but still manageable. The alcohol is pretty well hidden. Big and brash. Not something I'd care to drink again but definitely good for the style. This sort of beer needs to be tamed in a bourbon barrel.
